We’ve been having some discussions at
$DAYJOB about process and
methodologies. The topic of late is scrum and how it may
or may not be helpful for the particular group I work with. I’ve been
providing some anecdotal input based my past experience with scrum and other
methodologies/frameworks/practices and asking questions about what problems
the group is hoping to find new solutions for.
I started to write a big wall o' text™ email about a particular topic and then decided that maybe a blog post would be a better way to work through my idea. So dear reader1 , here are some of my highly opinionated and mostly unsubstantiated thoughts about a process that a group of people could use to plan a scrum sprint (or really any other iterative unit of work).
