Agile & Scrum

Agile coaching & training


On February 11-13, 2001, at The Lodge at Snowbird ski resort in the Wasatch mountains of Utah, seventeen people met to talk, ski, relax, and try to find common ground—and of course, to eat. What emerged was the Agile ‘Software Development’ Manifesto. Representatives from Extreme Programming, SCRUM, DSDM, Adaptive Software Development, Crystal, Feature-Driven Development, Pragmatic Programming, and others sympathetic to the need for an alternative to documentation driven, heavyweight software development processes convened.

Scrum is a framework within which people can address complex adaptive problems, while productively and creatively delivering products of the highest possible value. Scrum was developed by Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland. Scrum is: Lightweight, Simple to understand but Difficult to master. The Scrum framework consists of:

  • 3 roles: Product Owner, Developement team and Scrum Master
  • 4 events: (Sprint), Sprint Planning, Daily Scrum, Sprint Review and Sprint Retrospective
  • 3 artifacts: Product Backlog, Sprint Backlog and Increment
