VilMinds Agile/Scrum Card

What Is Agile?
The Agile movement seeks alternatives to traditional project management. Agile approaches help teams respond to unpredictability through incremental, iterative work cadences and empirical feedback. Agilists propose alternatives to waterfall, or traditional sequential development.

What is Scrum?
Scrum is the most popular way of introducing Agility due to its simplicity and flexibility.Scrum emphasizes empirical feedback, team self management, and striving to build properly tested product increments within short iterations.
Tools Used in agile/Scrum project.
JIRA , Rally , Redmine etc.

Agile Overview.
Delivering small piece of functionality within short period of time (Sprint).
Small piece of functionality is considered as User Story.
Product Backlog: Complete product functionality (user stories).
Sprint = Short period, it can be 2 Weeks, 3 Weeks depends on the project.

Agile/Scrum roles:
1) Product Owner – Responsible for writing user stories, acceptance criteria.
2) Scrum Master – Responsible to manage the scrum and sprints
3) Team (Developer, Testers, Architects etc.) – Responsible to implement and deliver the user stories
