Did you see your Software Development team sprinting? And you saw them delivering products without missing a release?

Well do you want to know why they are sprinting and how that is helping them release products on time and how even the product quality is increased? You might also have observed that the team is not even working late hours?


The team must have certainly adopted Agile Methodologies to develop there products incrementally and iteratively. What ?



Well, Well , Now you want to jump in and make your team sprint. But you are wondering if your management is going to be happy about it or not? You should start slow. Start with a simple project and start adopting scrum methodologies. You need to teach your team on how to play this scrum game aAnd guide them through out the process. In the next sprint, you have to see how to improve the game.
