Scrum Queries

Postby jeepeecj Thu Aug 24, 2017 10:50 am

Seema/Saket,

Few Scrum related queries (grouping under one question)

1.User story (for requirements) used only in Scrum or in Kanban, XP & Lean also?

2.If User story is not mandatory in Scrum, what are the other ways to define the requirements in Scrum?

3. Time boxing is only in Scrum ?

Please reply

Thanks,

1.User story (for requirements) used only in Scrum or in Kanban, XP & Lean also?

It can be used anywhere. The reason is simple; it helps to realize individuals & Interaction over processes or tools.

If User story is not mandatory in Scrum, what are the other ways to define the requirements in Scrum?


Scrum is a simple framework; it brings only three things as structure: 3 Backlog, 3 Roles, and four events. I highly recommend watching following video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQN36M5T8SM

Time boxing is only in Scrum ?


Time boxing is very important. In XP and Scrum, it is explicitly mentioned for the duration of events. In Kanban, it suggests making policies explicit. And we need to measure & manage the workflow, and for that agreement on time boxing for each stage of the board is desirable.
