Combining Agile Methodologies – XP and Scrum

with 9 comments

Since XP is more focused on development practices(engineering), while Scrum more towards project organization(management), it seems possible to combine this 2 methodologies.

Having experience both agile methodologies separately, here’s my take on the must-haves.

  1. Planning
    • Daily Standup(XP/Scrum) – What you done yesterday, going to do today, obstacles if any.
    • Break down requirements into user stories (XP), then put them into a product backlog using excel or web tools like acunote (Scrum)
    • Physical task-board for easy and quick viewing of sprint tasks
  2. Coding
  3. Testing
  4. Releasing

Interesting Differences.

  • XP prefers having no overtime anytime, anyday, while scrum prefers no rest within a sprint, which probably means no off days and leave, unless urgent, for a good 3-4 weeks.

Majority of the coding and testing rules come from XP, while planning rules come from SCRUM. The key is to keep the rules flexible. Sprint reviews after each sprint allows you to better fine-tune your rules, based on team strength/weakness or project nature. Well, as long as they work for you.

  6. Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was
    extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly
    enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips and hints for beginner blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    be available that in detail, therefore that thing is
    maintained over here.

  9. Asking questions are truly fastidious thing if you are not
    understanding something entirely, except this paragraph provides nice understanding even.
