Definition of Sprint 1
There are five deliverables due at the end of this Sprint, whose aim
is to set up the overall direction for the project, and to better understand the resources required.
The deliverables are:
- A Scope of Work, or, in the language of the Scrum methodology, the Epic. That is, a general
statement of what the project is to achieve.
That statement can be as informal as a set of bullet points in a text document, or as formal
as a Requirements Document (an example can be found here).
The main thing your team has to realise is that, while the Agile methology assumes that
project scope (i.e. requirements) can change, CITS3200 will, likely, be one of
four units you are each doing this semester, so the team needs to be conscious of the time
required. Therefore any departures from, or extensions to, the scope of work will have
be carefully considered in the light of the time available to the team.
- A Skills and Resources Audit. The idea is that before you dive into the project the
team should undertake an audit of what skills and tools the team needs to
successfully carry out the project, and therefore what you need to learn/acquire (and
- A Risk Register, i.e. a disccussion about possible risks to the project and how the team
will minimise/ameliorate those risks.
- Project Acceptance Tests. How will you know that the project as been successful?
Like the Scope of Work, this can be as informal as a bullet-point list or as formal a
formal test manual, a template for which can be found here.
- A set of stories to be
completed in Sprint 2, and a set of intermediate acceptance criteria to assess the products
of that Sprint.
