SCRUM itself is a simple framework for effective team collaboration on complex software projects. We love to use it because we can significantly increase our productivity and reduce delays which are relative to classic “waterfall” processes. SCRUM enables us to adjust smoothly to rapidly-changing product requirements, and produce a product that meets our ever evolving business goals in a timely manner.
As an added bonus to SCRUM, we use KANBAN. Kanban is Japanese for “visual signal” or “card.” Toyota line-workers used a kanban (i.e., an actual card) to signal steps in their manufacturing process. The system’s highly visual nature allowed teams to communicate more easily on what work needed to be done and when. It also standardised cues and refined processes, which helped to reduce waste and maximise value. We love to use Kanban because it takes information and processes that typically would be communicated via words and turns it into visual brain candy.
