Scrum Agile Methodology

  1. User stories (and tasks, features, etc.) are written and added to the product backlog. These can be written by the team, the project manager, project owner, or any other stakeholder.
  2. The Product Owner (or project manager) organizes the product backlog.
  3. During a sprint planning meeting, user stories are selected for design and development and implementation and prioritized into the sprint backlog by the product owner.
  4. The team works on the items in the sprint backlog with the Scrum Master helping to unblock team members.
  5. Every day the team meets for a daily scrum meeting where they discuss what they are working on and if they are blocked or stuck on anything.
  6. At the end of a sprint, there is a retrospective to see what went well and what needs to change.
  7. Then the cycle begins again with new user stories added, existing user stories selected for development and so on.
