KEY TENETS OF DATA DRIVEN SCRUM

Key Tenets of DDS:

  • AGILE IS ITERATIVE EXPERIMENTATION – Agile is intended to be a sequence of iterative experimentation and adaptation cycles.
  • ITERATIONS ARE CAPABILITY BASED – Teams work iteratively on a given set of items until they are done (no inflexible deadlines).
  • The team’s focus for each iteration is on CREATE, OBSERVE, ANALYZE – Each iteration always follows three core steps: Create something, observe its performance, and analyze the results.
  • EASILY INTEGRATEs WITH SCRUM – DDS’s interfaces can be seamlessly integrated within a traditional Scrum-based organization.

There are several aspects of DDS that are similar to traditional scrum, specifically, scrum’s Roles, Events and the use of an Item Backlog.
