What’s a “scrum”? Isn’t it a rugby thing? It is! But scrums are also part of being agile as a company — they’re the small, self-sufficient teams that get things done here at Onlia. Scrum teams are also famous for using a ridiculous number of sticky notes to convey ideas and tasks. Onlia is no different. We use a lot of stickies to quickly document everything from daily tasks, to company milestones, to our new scrum safety goals.
Being on a small scrum team in an agile workplace has its benefits:
- More focus on fewer tasks equals higher-quality work
- It’s easier to anticipate and roll with change
- Everyone has a say in the direction of their team and the projects they work on
- Less bureaucracy and red tape!
Sounds good, right? One of the best parts of working in scrums is the daily “stand-up” meeting where team members can share their progress, voice concerns, and can ask for help when they need it. #Teamwork
