The benefits of a scrum-style approach to development have helped it gain traction in the world of software development. At Red C, we use scrum, and the fact that scrum has grown to become one of the most sought-after frameworks is no secret. The benefits rendered by this framework make it one of the most efficient agile software development methodologies in existence today. Below are a few of the reasons why.
Following a scrum approach, the development team produces frequent builds and performs tests and reviews during each iteration that ensures consistent quality. The incorporation of continuous integration and testing enables our development team to detect and rectify any defects early on in the development process. The sprint retrospectives enable the scrum teams to streamline their work processes and improve efficiency. As the software is developed in gradual cycles, and the project is divided into manageable units, the team can further focus on improving the quality of development, testing, and integration.
While implementing scrum, we have noticed that the framework facilitates effective communication and collaboration between our internal and client teams. This was confirmed by a research study which revealed that scrum or agile teams are found to be 50% faster to market and 25% more productive than the non-agile ones. Also, the predictability of the methodology and the transparency achieved through the regular meetings allow the scrum teams to discuss their issues, share the progress, and collaborate to find solutions.
The scrum framework develops in sprints, and thus almost eliminates the chances of total project failure. This framework and its principles ensures that the team always has a working product starting from the very first sprint and thus rules out the possibility of project failure. Defects and issues are also detected early through the usage of automated testing tools. The regular daily scrums, while acting as a platform for better collaboration, allows team members to share their ideas to mitigate risk.
When it comes down to it, the one benefit that businesses look forward to when choosing a framework would be increased business value. As mentioned previously, the scrum framework provides better transparency by involving stakeholders in the development process. This helps the team to understand the expectations and deliver features that satisfy customers and provide business value for the organisation. As compared to the traditional model, the scrum framework does not venture out to specify the variable called ‘scope of work’ at the beginning of the project. This allows room for change, and the requirements are gathered as the team becomes acquainted with the customer’s needs.
