The purpose of this article is to provide useful information regarding the 4 processes that are core for the Scrum process. If these processes are followed, and the purpose of organizing that underlines them is followed they prove that the Scrum process, for software development, is a very effective one.
- Sprint Planning: A team meeting, where a plan for the next sprint is established, laying out the objectives of the next sprint.
- Daily Stand-up: This is the daily mini-meeting, also known as the daily scrum, usually lasting around 15 minutes, that allows the team to be kept up to date.
- Sprint Demo: A meeting, that usually takes place around the end of the sprint, where a visual representation of what has been achieved during the sprint is shown.
- Sprint Retrospective: A review, usually held during the same meeting as the sprint demo, here the team discusses what did/didn't go well during the last sprint, with improvement actions decided on by all members.
