The Scrum approach to agile software development marks a dramatic departure from waterfall management. Scrum and other agile methods were inspired by its shortcomings. Scrum emphasizes collaboration, functioning software, team self management, and the flexibility to adapt to emerging business realities.


Scrum Sprint Zero

Posted by admin under Scrum Basics

In Scrum’s definitions, every Sprint is an attempt to produce a potentially-shippable product increment, no matter how small. Every Sprint contains a combination of analysis, design, infrastructure, development, testing, and integration. Therefore, the common dysfunction called “Sprint Zero” is actually a contradiction in terms. Companies (and misinformed consultants and trainers) use this as a way to avoid changing waterfall habits.
