Agile Methodology in Product Engineering
Summary : Software industry has changed rapidly with the advent of SaaS, Cloud and other related technologies and delivery models. Time to produce new products and release cycles have shrunk. Time to market, superior quality, reduced development cost are some of the key differentiators for the success of any product development. In order to make the product successful, it's often that the product development team comes under tremendous pressure. Keeping up with these pressure in an uncontrolled fashion, leads the team to lose control on the product deadlines, scope, requirements, deliverable etc. To better co-ordinate the team efforts, Trigent uses Scrum project management framework with agile engineering best practices in many of their projects. This paper describes the Scrum methodology used, best practices implemented and lesson learned from one such engagement.
