Agile and Scrum methodology with Post-it® Brand
Short bursts for fast movers.
Have a project with rapidly changing requirements? The Agile/Scrum Model may provide the ideal system to navigate your ever-flexible project.
The Agile/Scrum Model divides projects into various modules to be tested and delivered in increments. Assemble a small team whose roles represent the entirety of your project — this team will meet often throughout the duration of the project. Then get ready to race!
- Begin your Agile/Scrum by finding a wall that is accessible to all group members and add a Post-it® Meeting Chart. Create individual headers for each of the following: Story, To Do, In Process, To Verify and Done. Place each of the headers (in the order mentioned) in a row at the top of your wall.
- Next, write a complete list of the functions/features that need to be added to the project. These are referred to as “stories”.
- Write down each story separately on a Post-it® Super Sticky Note and arrange beneath the Story column. Colour-code each story in relation to the team member responsible for it.
- Identify the to-dos associated with each story. Jot down each requirement on a Post-it® Super Sticky Note and place in a row directly next to the relevant story.
- If a To Do task is ready to be worked on, the team member responsible for it moves it to the In Process column.
- The In Process column represents all tasks that are currently being worked on — whether just underway or close to being completed.
- If a task has been worked on but requires testing, the team member responsible for it moves it into the To Verify column.
- Once a task has been completed, it can be moved into the Done column. At the completion of the project, remove all Post-it® Super Sticky Notes from this column.
