Scrum (n): A framework within which people can address complex adaptive problems, while productively and creatively delivering products of the highest possible value.
The Sprint is an iteration of work, typically 1 month or less in duration, where a potentially releasable product increment is produced. Sprints have consistent durations throughout a development effort. A new Sprint starts immediately after the conclusion of the previous Sprint. The Sprint contains several other events such as Sprint Planning, Daily Scrums, the Sprint Review and the Sprint Retrospective, in addition to the development work.
A set of techniques used by a workshop leader, or facilitator, to improve the operation of a workshop or project team meeting. The benefits of applying facilitation techniques include:
Dynamic systems development method (DSDM) is an agile project delivery framework, initially used as a software development method. First released in 1994, DSDM originally sought to provide some discipline to the rapid application development (RAD) method. In later versions, the DSDM Agile Project Framework was revised and became a generic app...
In the early 1990s, rapid application development (RAD) was spreading across the IT industry. The user interfaces for software applications were moving from the old green screens to the graphical user interfaces that are used today. New application development tools were coming on the market, such as PowerBuilder. These enabled developers to share their proposed solutions much more easily with their customers – prototyping became a reality and the frustrations of the classical, sequential (waterfall) development methods could be put to one side.
All requirements are important, but they are prioritized to deliver the greatest and most immediate business benefits early. Developers will initially try to deliver all the Must have, Should have and Could have requirements but the Should and Could requirements will be the first to be removed if the delivery timescale looks threatened.
The MoSCoW method is a prioritization technique used in management, business analysis, project management, and software development to reach a common understanding with stakeholders on the importance they place on the delivery of each requirement; it is also known as MoSCoW prioritization or MoSCoW analysis.
In project management science, the triple constraints of scope, schedule and cost are used to quantify a project. But quantification of scope has been challenging—and not been implemented effectively. This white paper proposes a method for assessment, tracking and reporting of project scope in information technology projects that are executed using waterfall, V-model or agile/kanban.
Design thinking is a broad framework for problem identification and/or solving. It is characterized by a high level of collaborative engagement, using creative methods that are often co-created and visual in nature. Design thinking supports an iterative approach to problem identification and solutioning, encouraging repetitious divergent and subseq...
