SCRUM Framework

SCRUM is an iterative and flexible software development method for the management of software projects and product or application development. For a more comprehensive introduction to SCRUM, please click here. The following are key SCRUM terminologies:

1. Roles & Responsibilities

SCRUM process flow of events
  • The Product Owner, Dr Christian Cuske, is responsible for the business interest and value of the project.
  • The SCRUM Master (Project Manager) takes charge of managing the product backlog and the team’s productivity.
  • The team is a self-managed entity that ensures that the work gets completed.

2. Product Backlog

  • The process is first triggered with a list of requirements drawn up by the Product Owner.

3. Sprint Planning / Sprint Backlog

  • The team selects items from the IceBox and places it in the Sprint Backlog, and therein serves as the to-do list for that Sprint.

4. Sprint

  • A sprint is a duration that the team takes to complete the tasks selected in the sprint backlog.
  • A sprint duration is either 7 or 14 days.
  • At the end of each sprint, the team meets to discuss their
    • availability for the next sprint,
    • the stories to be included in the next sprint with reference from the priorities,
    • estimated man-days required from the product backlog, and milestones list,
    • and review the sprint that has just ended.
      • Impediments of the sprint are identified and the members will aim to rid them from the next sprint.

The SCRUM process then repeats itself until the product backlog is cleared.
