The benefits of Agile Scrum

  • All stakeholders benefit when using Agile Scrum; the team because of the clearly defined roles, interaction and flexibility. 
  • Management because the team runs itself and the members are motivated and committed. 
  • The stakeholders because they are constantly up to date. 
  • And the product owner because (s)he gets what (s)he ordered.

Customer satisfaction: Agile Scrum facilitates changing customer requirements. The flexible way of working allows for changing demands and new features. Changes can easily be facilitated, without disrupting the project flow or affecting the team’s morale. .

Transparency: one of the Agile Scrum principles is active ‘user’ and/or product owner involvement. The progress, status, changes are all visible so that it is clear at all times what the end product will be like. This way, expectations are effectively managed.

High Quality & Low Risk: testing is integrated throughout the project so that any quality issues can be detected and addressed at an early stage. The Sprints are followed by a review which allows the team to reflect on the previous sprint and discuss improvements for the next. This allows for adjustments according to the client’s wishes.
