Why should you use scrum in your web projects? Simply put, it’ll enable your team to get more done in less time.
Scrum is by far the most popular agile project management methodology used in web projects today. While most scrum books tend to be lengthy textbooks that cover every detail of scrum for all types of organizations, this highly practical book concentrates solely on how best to apply scrum in web and mobile development projects.
In this book, you will be introduced to the fundamentals of scrum, and given examples that you can apply immediately. And since scrum is as much about the people as it is about the processes, we will introduce you to a typical web and mobile development team, and show you the impact of scrum on their jobs, their working relationships, and the things they care about most in their professions
Whether you’re not sure what scrum is, or you think your scrum process isn’t all that it should be, this book can help. Scrum isn’t magic, but the results it can produce are well worth taking the time to learn how to apply it effectively.
This book is for anyone who works in a team to build web or mobile apps: engineers, QA, management, designers, and product managers. It assumes no familiarity with scrum or other project management techniques. While it’s aimed at readers who have little understanding of scrum, it will also be useful to those who are currently using scrum, but aren’t sure that they are getting the results that they want from it.
