Scrum Team Management:
Work Smarter, Not Harder!

Developers? Check! Designers? Check! Testers? Check! Is there anyone missing on board? Yes…
All bright minds can shine even brighter when accompanied by a resourceful Scrum Master and an insightful Product Owner.

Scrum team management to up your game

In the ever-changing world of technology, conventional product strategies such as the waterfall model fail under pressure of competitive digital markets. New methodologies have emerged as a response and Scrum as part of Agile software development is one of them.

Iterative development cycle divided into time-boxed sprints has changed the game: now tangible results are achieved regularly, in short timespans. Flexible scoping and budgeting can significantly boost business agility and the team’s ability to respond user expectations.

Combined with test-driven development, Scrum helps deliver software with excellent business value

Scrum development team is a wise choice for those that aspire to embrace a truly customer-centered and business-driven approach to product development. The fact that agile projects are on average 28% more successful than others can be the final, deciding factor.

Agile shift in FinTech product development

The landscape of software development in financial services has been utterly transformed. One of the biggest changes is a mass transition from traditional project management methods, such as waterfall, to new agile frameworks.

Scrum and Agile seem to be natural choices for fast-paced and disruptive FinTech startups. However, more and more incumbents recognize the benefits of Agile not only in software development but across all business units.

In a nutshell, agile transformation can help businesses respond to and manage change, enhance communication, foster a collaborative environment, empower employees through self-organising teams, and track project progress.

Scrum development solves many problems

Communication

Effective communication and feedback on all levels form the strongest pillars of agile Scrum team. Team members update each other on a daily basis and frequent meetings (depending on the iteration period) are held in order to keep both the team and the client in the loop. This approach allows for fostering one of the main principles of Scrum: collaborative decision making. There are several types of meetings (daily standup, planning, backlog refinement, review, retrospective, etc.) and each of them has a specific focus, resulting in defining clear action points for the next stage of the project.

Transparency

Scrum stands out among other project management frameworks due to its focus on mutual trust and openness. It starts with the backlog, which includes all future to-do items and is available to everyone involved in the project. The goal of each iteration is clearly stated during the planning session. The framework’s step-by-step structure enables tracking project progress, while keeping everyone on the same page when it comes to next steps or problem solving. Sharing information about any obstacles or bottlenecks encountered by the Scrum team is the first step to tackling them!

Efficiency

Scrum helps companies overcome some of the biggest cooperation challenges: analysing and understanding the essence of the work needed to be done to achieve the goal. Breaking complex ideas into precise to-do items helps maintain high efficiency and boost motivation. This way, the team is basically self-organising. Tasks are assigned according to experience, skillset and availability, which means everybody is able to deliver their best work in optimal time. Moreover, the spirit of teamwork, mutual support and commitment to a common goal can significantly improve productivity.

Agility

Product development can be affected by many external factors: budget issues, team rotation, competitors’ tactics, priority shifts, market fluctuation, etc. More often than not, good product/market fit depends on quick adaptation to new conditions. With its short-term sprints (from 1 to 4 weeks) and strategic task allocation, an agile project management framework such as Scrum is a perfect remedy to volatility. It makes it easier to handle changes, monitor progress and eventually deliver a product that meets users’ expectations and adds value to your business.
