SCRUM is an agile methodology that is widely used in software development. This methodology focuses on collaboration, flexibility, and early and frequent delivery of software increments. SCRUM is based on iteration and continuous improvement to deliver the best possible value to the customer, where the delivery of working software is the primary measure of progress.
However, before delving into the steps to develop a project using SCRUM, it is important to keep in mind that SCRUM requires a well-organized, skilled team committed with this methodology.
That said, the steps to develop a project according to agile methodologies (SCRUM) are as follows:
Project planning in SCRUM is done at two levels: the high-level overview and the sprint level. At the high-level, the development team defines the overall objective of the project and the value that the customer expects to obtain. At the sprint level, the development team plans the specific objectives of the sprint.
2. Creation of the Product Backlog:
The Product Backlog is a prioritized list of customer requirements. The product owner works with the customer to define the requirements and organize them.
3. Creating the Sprint:
The Sprint is a list of selected requirements from the Product Backlog that must be completed during the sprint.
4. Daily Scrum Meetings:
During daily Scrum meetings, the development team meets to discuss progress and obstacles in the completion of the Sprint. These meetings are held daily and are short (15 minutes) and are preferably conducted standing up.
5. Increment development:
During increment development, the development team works together to complete the Sprint requirements. The SCRUM methodology is iterative, meaning that the development team works in an iterative development cycle involving planning, design, coding, testing and review.
6. Sprint Review:
At the end of the Sprint, the development team submits the completed work to the Product Owner.
7. Sprint Retrospective:
During the retrospective, the development team discusses what went well during the sprint, what didn’t go well, and what can be done better in the future. The sprint retrospective is an opportunity for continuous improvement of the development process.
These are the steps to develop a project according to the SCRUM agile methodology. SCRUM is a very effective agile methodology.
In Dimensiona we are specialized in the use of this type of methodology to carry out our projects and we have a team with a common goal, flexible in their way of working and adaptable to changes in customer requirements.
