Basic knowledge of Scrum

“Scrum” is one of the agile methods and is used by many companies.

We divide the project into short periods of several weeks, and within that short period we carry out a series of tasks from planning, execution, testing to completion. It is a framework that completes a project step by step while repeating the work of completing a part.

Leveraging Scrum increases flexibility, allowing you to respond quickly to market needs and accelerate organizational innovation.


PRODUCT OWNER
Responsible for maximizing the value of your products and prioritizing your work.

SCRUM MASTER
Responsible for promoting and supporting Scrum.

DEVELOPERS
Make available increments.


SPRINT
A short activity cycle from project planning to completion. Make sure to complete the increment when the sprint is complete. (Sprint is an event that includes the following four)

SPRINT PLANNING
The entire Scrum team will participate. The developer creates a sprint backlog to complete the top priority product backlog item.

The product owner considers the goals to be achieved in the sprint and the product backlog items.

DAILY SCRUM
The shortest meeting to re-plan your day’s work for optimal output.

SPRINT REVIEW
At the end of the sprint, we will inspect the increments and, if necessary, scrutinize the product backlog. The Scrum team and stakeholders review the sprint outcomes.

SPRINT RETROSPECTIVE
Check the status of the Scrum team and the improvements in the next sprint. Do this after the sprint review and before the next sprint planning begins.


PRODUCT BACKLOG
A list of sprint-sized projects, products, and services. The product owner is responsible and the team helps.

SPRINT BACKLOG
A plan for developers to work on top product backlog items to meet the definition of completion and acceptance criteria within the sprint.

POTENTIALLY SHIPPABLE PRODUCT INCREMENT
A project, product, or service that is up and running.


NOT READY
In the column or list just to the left of the product backlog, you can consider options for future work.

PRODUCT BACKLOG REFINEMENT
In a meeting that everyone attends, scrutinize the items in the “Not Ready” column and prioritize the product backlog. The product backlog meets the definition of ready.

DEFINITION OF READY
A ready product backlog item is less risky as it is more than 80% likely to complete its work within the sprint, demonstrating sufficient clarity and business integrity.

BLOCKED BOX
A place to place work waiting for external dependencies, such as another team or vendor, or a robotic process that is out of the control of the team.

DEFINITION OF DONE
The team’s commitment is that every work completed must meet its defined quality standards.

DONE BOARD
A column for each sprint. Scrolls back four or more sprints to show what meets the definition of completion and has been accepted by the team’s customers in each previous sprint.

TEAM WORKING AGREEMENT
It is usually above the sprint backlog. Shows to what the team members have agreed. The list is usually less than 10 items for you to remember and use.

SPRINT BURN DOWN CHART
A time chart showing what items meet the definition of completion and when they were completed. Sprint burndown charts can quickly answer the question of when a particular scope will complete.

RELEASE BURN DOWN CHART
A time chart that shows when and what met the definition of completion as you forecast release of a larger product from your current or past sprints.

PERSONAS
Usually just to the right of the completion board, users, buyers, maintainers, purchasing influencers, people who fund projects, or potential impacts that are likely to impact the release or use of the product. Shows stakeholders, compliance officers, etc. within a company. For each persona, make a short list of short names, pictures you imagine, what you want from the product or service you’re building, and related dislikes and causes of dissatisfaction. Create a backlog to please each persona to assess value and mitigate risk. Maximize profits for any persona.

RELATIVE SIZE ESTIMATION REFERENCES
By looking at recently completed projects, teams can quickly and accurately predict the effort and complexity of the next project. Then, by predicting the completion time according to the definition of completion and acceptance criteria, you can know when it will be completed and whether the team is speeding up or slowing down.

RELATIVE VALUE ESTIMATION REFERENCES
Reference projects are based on how much revenue you ultimately make, how much impact you ultimately have on your company’s mission, how much you mitigate risk, and whether you have learned new abilities. This will create a value score. Value scores that can be referenced from past projects allow product owners to quickly assess their rough value to the company. Considering the size of the effort and the technical dependencies, we will work on the most valuable and least labor-intensive work first.

GROUP SCRUM BOARD
A large board with rows for each team working and columns for each team to see each completed sprint. It shows the KPIs needed to run the entire business. In reality, these KPIs are usually the amount or resources each team spends on that sprint, and the amount or resources that the output of that sprint brings to the company. The board may also include the number of points of work the team completed in the sprint, quality issues and quality scores in the output of the sprint, and specifically what was completed in the sprint.
