In today’s world, we are surrounded by app stores, quick thumbprint approvals, on-demand video, instant deliveries, and personal drivers, and it is easy to overlook the love and tireless hours of work that go in to updating a modern, bespoke trading application. Well, unpack all of your stories and align your scrum deliverables, because we are about to take a deep dive to arrive at a ten-thousand-foot view, detailing all of the low-hanging fruit that goes into an MVP (minimum viable product in layman’s terms).
First, get all your stakeholders onboard with the same product vision statement and map it out. Second, incrementally line up your backlog so that the taskboard can be implemented in vertical slices. Next, convey the acceptance criteria in an epic way. As a reminder, in order to stick to time frames, retrospective huddle reviews must be conducted at every standup prior to release date. Finally, and this is the most important piece, jumble all of these words together and yell them into a room of developers. (This final stage takes practice, as a certain level of love has to be portrayed in the yelling.)
