I have believed in using Scrum as a software development methodology since I first were introduced to Scrum back in 2005/2006. After a while I took the ScrumMaster certification (CSM) and started using Scrum as the preferred development methodology. During this time Scrum was getting very popular i Norway. It had become a buzz word and projects were either using Scrum or talking about using Scrum.
The majority of projects that I have been involved in after 2006 have been using Scrum or at least been highly influenced by Scrum. During this period of time I have found my preferred way of using this methodology. In this post I will talk about how I like to use the tools provided by Scrum. This is not a guide on how to use Scrum but more me telling what works for me.
