The Scrum Pillars at Sophilabs: Transparency
We strive to maintain an Agile approach to software development, and we use Scrum as a framework to organize our work. However, it's crucial that we don't practice Scrum just for the sake of following a structure by the book, lest we fall into the clutches of Zombie Scrum. Instead, we must understand the underlying value of what we're doing and prioritize these valuable outcomes in the way we use Scrum.
One way to do this is to make sure the three pillars of empirical process control – transparency, inspection, and adaptation – are front and center in every sprint. Furthermore, we should sustain and strengthen these pillars with the Scrum values of commitment, courage, focus, openness, and respect. In this post, we'll look at how our team works to achieve transparency, the first pillar of Scrum.
