Scrum - The Hottest Project Methodologies

Acquiring the knowledge of a new language is one of the initial steps in acquiring a new skill and consistent use of language is fundamental to team trying to work together. There are a few terms defined in the Scrum to understand its meaning clearly, they are:

Agile: It is a set of software development practices designed to help developers work together and adapt to changes quickly and easily.

Customer: Whoever has engaged the team to create a product.

Developer: A person responsible for creating and maintaining the product.

Product Backlog: A constantly evolving list of potential features or changes for a project.

Product Owner: A person who helps define the product for the team.

Scrum Master: A person responsible for maintaining the artifacts and overseeing the rituals of scrum.

Sprint: A fixed number of days during which the team can work together to produce an agreed upon set of changes to the product.

Story: A clear and consistent way of dividing, phrasing, and discussing work the team may need to do on the product.

Fail Fast Technique

Scrum wants you to fail. In fact, it's known for the slogan "fail fast". No, I'm not joking. It sounds weird, but there is a very good reason for this. Traditionally, project managers and developers would work for months or years before seeing the results. Most of the time, around 80% in fact, the software and projects failed. So, why, you might ask, are they signing up for more failure? Well, really, they are not.

The trick is in focusing on the second word: Fast. Failure is okay as long as you are learning from it, but if you have to wait too long, you are not going to learn nearly as much from it. Scrum takes the Agile manifesto and its key principles boils them down to a very simple framework that encourages small-scale focus and rapid learning cycles.
