This article provides an ‘Introduction to Scrum Projects’ and looks to discuss the metrics used for measuring project progress.
P is for Planning. The “planning” phase is probably the most time consuming, but also the most necessary to start out on the right foot and direction.
In Planning, the output expected from the team is the Product Vision, which is the concrete and actionable description of what the stakeholder wants, is the basis for the Product Roadmap The Product Roadmap, which is the breakdown of product features and requirements, informs the Release Plan, which is established by the Product Owner.
Once the Release Plan is in place, the Product Owner turns to the Scrum Team and creates the Product Backlog. This Product Backlog is less about delivering software and more about creating software. It is a managed collection of tasks that must be completed for the software to be finished.
The Product Owner prioritises the Product Backlog and ensures that only valuable and feasible tasks get in with the most valuable tasks being developed first. This gives the Scrum team a constant stream of new work, while ensuring that stakeholders get valuable software quickly.

User Stories Applied
A 59 Seconds Agile Book Review
User Stories Applied by Mike Cohn is one of our favourite books on Agile User Stories. The book starts with an overview into user stories, and details what a user story is and the different aspects of them. He then discusses how to go about writing a user story, and provides details of the INVEST criteria that can be used to determine if the story is meeting all of its objectives. Next Mike gives an in depth discussion of who user stories are written for and where to begin when gathering the details for them. The book then discusses acceptance testing user stories, including how to go about specifying these criteria and the responsibilities of the development team and customers during this process.
