Nearly 66% of companies depend on Scrum as the backbone behind how they operate. Why? Scrum has streamlined software development and has proven to be one of the strongest forms of project management across many industries.
Scrum is recognized as an Agile framework that functions over an iterative process; it defines the rules and organizational flow that enable businesses to be successful. By practicing essential ceremonies of Scrum like stand ups into our everyday routine at Fenway, we encourage communication between the development team and client to ensure daily progression. Other ceremonies noted by Scrum include sprint planning, sprint review, and sprint retrospective. During sprint planning, we meet with the client to prioritize tasks and set goals over each iteration. At the end of the sprint, the Scrum team participates in a sprint review to verify that the completed work is held to a high standard and deliver a potentially releasable increment. Despite each and every successful sprint, there is always additional room for growth. Sprint retrospectives are a time to reflect over the past sprint and provide feedback to the team. This way the team can continue doing the things that work and develop action items that will contribute to meeting our goals in the future.
Scrum greatly increases productivity by creating an environment where development teams can thrive and constantly improve. Communication marks the key to success in any business. Fenway’s application of best implementation strategies provide the supportive guidance every company requires to set and accomplish goals that were thought to be out of reach.
