Only your learning capability will lead you to the path of success. After years of working Agile Software Development our way, We at Teravision have some things to share about the pursuit of perfection.

Perfect and Agile are exact opposites. So, there is no such thing as a “Perfect Sprint” at all. However, mastering Agile Software Development is as close as you can get to a perfect one.

Today, We are going to share with you three pieces of knowledge taken directly from the field. I wish it will be of benefit for your teamwork:

Efficient Grooming and Sprint Planning are crucial.

  • Have your grooming sessions in advance. We recommend doing two or three “meeting scenarios” during the current sprint, planning for the next
  • The better your team estimates their own tasks, the best your results will be: T-shirt sizing or story points are good ways developers and testers can do it.

Leadership should be focused on the team’s health to secure an outstanding delivery.

Participants should know their roles, steps, expected deliverables, times and what to do when things are not on track.

Keep this in mind to make leadership in Agile Software Development a masterpiece:

  • Promote the “mention everything ASAP” culture, this especially applies to standup meetings.
  • Encourage the Scrum Master to increase communication by putting together the development team and the customer’s team.

Do you want to know more about healthy teams?

Adopt a QA “twist” for a better sprint.

Overcome the traditional rivalry between Development and QA teams by making them think as one.

How to realize if that is happening?

  • Tech leads from QA and Development have more conversations about solutions and the results. The whole team should be aware of what is going on (within the same session and by using the same channels for everybody).
  • Nevertheless, encourage your team to execute a rigorous QA process that includes:
    • Unit testing.
    • Peer reviews.
    • Set up formal test cases using a Matrix to cover:
      • “The Happy Path”.
      • Malicious ways.
      • Use of real devices instead of emulators for delivering agreed UX/UI.

Do you want to know how to handle QA and Development working as One Team?
