Thanks to working on several client projects, I have the opportunity to observe different work methodologies and their effects. We are going to copy this technique.
If you are a web programmer, you must know the Scrum methodology. I’m not going to tell you about her right now in detail. That is why I have put a link to Wikipedia if you have heard about the subject in the past and you have the feeling that the time has come to dedicate a little more time to it.
About Scrum I want to talk to you today about sprints. Their two-week development cycles. During this time, the maximum number of possible tasks will be carried out. These are usually documented in Jira or other similar tools. Previously, a sprint planning is carried out in which the capacity of the team is added so that only the history points are used. E.g. the team has a maximum capacity of 100 story points. In this case, in the last weeks of the sprint, you could lose 10 points if you had a work estimate of 10 points. This “currency” can be used or not. It is simply an aid to getting a more realistic assessment of what is feasible and what is not. We don’t need it.
Mixing Kanban and Sprints
We are mixing the concepts of Kanban and sprints. Kanban is an alternative to working in sprints. Here the tasks pass different phases. In our case they are “task box”, “soon”, “on it”, “to review” and “done”. Here you already get an idea through the name of each phase.
All our projects are managed with Kanban. To this we now add the sprints. The last one was about the release of a new pack of its own from a 50-card pack in English. Here a sum of tasks that must be carried out at the same time are gathered: list creation, photos, preparation of packs, sending of packs, launching campaigns, etc. You will see that it is a sum of tasks that must be carried out in a short period of time. That is why it makes sense for us to add the concept of sprints for certain challenges.
The sprint is to achieve the next challenge of launching the purchase of maps on a website that we have created for it. Here once again a series of tasks are needed: testing the form, creation of FAQs, email templates, promotion campaign, etc. Once again, different tasks that must be carried out in a short period of time are brought together.
The great advantage that I see is that we set a deadline of two weeks where yes or yes we have to have completed the task. Otherwise there are always delays. If you work with sprint you cannot move the topics because the next sprint is coming up.
Going to continue testing and see how the team evolves.
