Scrum team roles at Code & Pepper
Planning how the product should look and function is hard enough, especially when you’re figuring it all out by yourself! A skilled Product Owner can put your ideas into an actionable plan, watch out for scope creep and manage risks. Our experts will carefully analyse your product and bring out the best of it.
Every self-organising Scrum development team needs its guardian angel. A dedicated Scrum Master will support team members, encourage collaboration among stakeholders and remove any technical or administrative obstacles that could affect project progress and performance.
Scrum is our go-to methodology in team augmentation, but for quick projects (up to 3 months) we may also switch to Kanban, another agile framework. Whatever the project duration, your team at Code & Pepper will use proven measurement techniques to determine velocity and plan reliably.
Agile can help you future-proof your business
Scrum development solves many problems
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.
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!
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.
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.
Recipe for success: nearshore Scrum development team
Code & Pepper experts contributed to the development of LUSID, an advanced business asset management platform. The project scope varied during the years of collaboration, according to the current needs of the client: from product design, UI/UX design and product ownership to web app development in Angular and project management.
However, the changes were never a problem thanks to two factors: Code & Pepper’s flexibility in team augmentation and Scrum team management. The latter allowed for tackling any potential issues that might affect IT nearshoring, streamlined communication between the client and the team members located in Poland and provided an efficient way to measure project progress.
