  • This is basically a 1 day product ownership course compressed into 15 minute animated presentation. There's obviously more to product ownership than this, so see this is a high level summary.

    This gives a really great overview of Agile using simple-to-understand language! I like like this video a lot. Enjoy

  • Really worth reading if you are experiencing Agile Scrum development.

    I do think AGILE and SCRUM has its place.  It is just that I believe this place is running projects under 5 people and delivery durations of less than 6 months. At that level, employing the right people with the right skills and motivation frequently guarantees that MAGIC will occur. The new media industry proves this everyday, irrespective of approach /method used. Good people always have the potential to overcome deficiencies with methods /approaches and poor management. I have seen it time and time again.

    This is what I would call 

    anti patterns for Scrum

    I think you can learn a lot more from these anti scrum pattern failures than from success stories. The path to success is narrower than you may think!, and you can be on a parallel road leading to a failure. Take also time to read all the comments, some are really interesting.

    What is the most interesting is this article was written in 2006!

  • Agile testing is a software testing practice that follows the principles of agile software development. Agile testing is built upon the philosophy that testers need to adapt to rapid deployment cycles and changes in testing patterns. Providing and getting feedback early, fast and regularly is one of the testers main task.

    Atlassian just acquired GreenHopper, a popular JIRA plugin with over 800 customers.

    GreenHopper is a JIRA plug-in that adds a broad collection of agile project management capabilities to JIRA, and extends JIRA as a powerful platform for agile development teams. GreenHopper simplifies the planning and organization of tasks, workflows and reporting for agile teams.

    It introduce in JIRA

    • Card management:&160; Visualise issues, tasks and user stories as graphical "cards", color-coded and dynamically editable.

    • Planning Board: Quickly create, assemble, sort and prioritize project tasks with drag-and-drop simplicity.

    • Task Board: Track progress through simple, graphical views of remaining tasks across projects and teams.

    • Chart Board: Customizable dashboard, dynamic burn down and burn up charts.

    Learn all about GreenHopper at www.atlassian.com/greenhopper. Unfortunately it is not a free extension… ($700 to $1150 to add to JIRA)

  • Scrum is an iterative, incremental framework for project management and agile software development.
    Although Scrum was intended for management of software development projects, it can be used to run software maintenance teams, or as a general project/program management approach.

    We follow these principles:

    Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software.

    Welcome changing requirements, even late in development. Agile processes harness change for the customer's competitive advantage.

    Deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter timescale.

    Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project.

    Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done.

    The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is face-to-face conversation.

    Working software is the primary measure of progress.

    Agile processes promote sustainable development. The sponsors, developers, and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely.

    Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility.

    Simplicity--the art of maximizing the amount of work not done--is essential.

    The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams.

    At regular intervals, the team reflects on how to become more effective, then tunes and adjusts its behavior accordingly.
