Chad as Scrum Master would serve as the team's coach, helping team members work together in the most effective manner possible. A good Scrum Master views the role as one of providing a service to the team, removing impediments to progress, facilitating meetings and discussions, and performing typical project management duties such as tracking progress and issues.
Scrum within an Agile Game-Development environment can and is similar to other industries of software development, even event management.
Each game project has many moving parts as seen below in my straw hat design. We first start by conceptualizing and designing out the game before ever writing a piece of code. Without some sort of planning, you are bound to fail at the current project. So the key part as you develop the game or any project is to iterate, iterate, iterate. As crazy as the hat's design may be, you can see each straw has a purpose and overall look. When all the pieces are formed and complete then the finished project can be accomplished.
Agile with Game Scrum Development:
Iterative and incremental
Produce working software every sprint
Development results and commitment oriented tasking
Not a silver bullet so it wont solve all issues
History of success on a wide variety of projects
project up in flames?
Inspire and Engage
the process of finding solutions to difficult or complex issues inside all aspects of the project.
capability to drive performance within a group of cross-discipline devs.
achieve all of the project goals within the given constraints: scope, time, quality and budget.
Those who plan do better than those who do not plan, even though they rarely stick to their plan.
Development is a timely and costly career. So why struggle with late projects, inconsistent time, etc... I created 8 Bit Agile to be the foundation and outlook young companies can reach to when things aren't going the way they want or need. The help can be assessing the project or game you are currently working on, helping establish the next sprint by working with the team and develop a proper retrospective so that you can realign your productivity and burndown, or are you a larger company that needs some needed focused help in the production area of the project? There can be several needs you need to cover or help with. So don't hesitate to reach out and tell me what your needs are!
Agile helps to improve quality and save our most valued possession, Time!
