There is a new section for working with tasks according to the Scrum method. Here you can quickly organize the work of a scrum team.
The number of scrum teams depends on the plan:
- Free – 5 teams
- Basic – 5 teams
- Standard – 10 teams
- Professional – 20 teams
Scrum – is a flexible way of organizing a workflow with tasks. A large project is divided into small tasks carried out gradually.
In Scrum, tasks are set for a short period of time, usually 2 weeks. These cycles are called Sprints. By the end of the sprint, you get a certain result. If a task is not completed during a sprint, it can be divided into smaller subtasks. This format allows you to get a small but predictable result in a certain time period.
All tasks, wishes, ideas, feedback are gathered in a special list. It is called a Backlog. It helps the team not to miss something important.
- Definition of Done
The team members discuss and approve a list of conditions for completing the task. These conditions become items in the check list. Before closing the task, everyone from the team puts ticks in the check list .
- Systematic work
Scrum work includes regular meetings according to the schedule. There are four types of meetings: planning, daily meetings, demonstration of results, and retrospectives. This work structure ensures a good pace of work.
