An Agile Scrum Sprint
is a repeatable fixed time-box during which a “Done” product of the highest possible value is created. It also has a maximum duration. Usually, a Sprint lasts for one month or less.
Daily meetings are held to discuss the progress of the project undertaken and any difficulty faced by any team member of the team while implementing the project.
The outcome of the sprint is a deliverable, albeit with some increments. The scrum is used for projects like Web Technology or development of a product for the new market, i.e. the product with many requirements or fast-changing requirements.
Agile User Stories
A user story is an informal, general explanation of a software feature written from the perspective of the end user. Its purpose is to articulate how a software feature will provide value to the customer.
The Product Owner is responsible for the product’s current state of development and for maximizing the product’s value. Product Owner can be one person, even if he represents a committee. His jobs includes:
Maintaining items in Product Backlog.
Assigning order to items in Backlog.
Ensuring that items in Product Backlog are clear to the Development Team.
It is important to ensure that the product owners include end users that understand the end goals for the product.
Agile Product Backlog
The product backlog comprises an ordered list of product requirements that a scrum team maintains for a product. The format of product backlog items varies, common formats include user stories, use cases, or any other requirements format the team finds useful. These will define features, bug fixes, non-functional requirements, etc.—whatever must be done to successfully deliver a viable product. The product owner prioritizes product backlog items (PBIs) based on considerations such as risk, business value, dependencies, size, and date needed.
