This article about SCRUM. Now almost all the organization uses scrum framework to execute the complete their projects and own products. Most of the service based organization work with scrum. I have prepare this article for beginners and who going to start new work.

Scrum Methodology in software testing?

What is Scrum methodology in software testing?

Traditionally, Scrum project management is a software agile development framework. Scrum model allow projects to progress through a series of iterations called agile sprints. Each and every sprint is typically two to four weeks, and also agile methodology and Scrum process is essential for sprint planning. While agile Scrum methodology can be used for managing the project, the Scrum agile process is ideally suited for projects with rapidly changing or highly emergent requirements like software.


Agile Process for Software

Scrum is used in the agile process for software development. However rather than a full process or methodology, it is a framework. Instead of providing complete, detailed descriptions of how everything is to be done on the project, much is left up to the software development team. This is done because the team will have idea best how to solve the problem they are presented. E.g. a sprint planning meeting is described in terms of the desired outcome instead of a set of Entry criteria, Task definitions, Validation criteria, and Exit criteria (ETVX) as would be provided in most methodologies.

Scrum count on a self-organizing, cross-functional team. The scrum team is self-organize in that there is no overall team lead or project manager role who decides which person will do which task. Those are issues are decided by the scrum team only. The Scrum team is cross-functional, every team member is necessary to take a feature from idea to implementation.

Agile development teams are supported by two specific individuals, a Scrum Master and a Product Owner. The Scrum Master can be consider as a coach of the scrum team, helps to team members to use the Scrum framework to perform at their highest. The product owner represents the business requirement, customers or users, and provide guidance to team toward building the right product.

Scrum projects make progress in a series of sprints, which are time boxed iterations no more than a month long. At the start of a Scrum sprint, team members commit to delivering some number of features or product backlog items that were listed on the project’s scrum product backlog. At the end of the Scrum sprint, these features are completed, they are coded, tested and integrated into the developing product or system. At the end of the sprint, a sprint review is conducted during which the team demonstrates the new functionality to the product owner and other interested stakeholders who provide feedback that could influence the next sprint.

Above information was a basic level, soon I will publish another article regarding Scrum methodology in software testing.
