Reporting Back to Managers in Scrum
A Scrum implementation’s effectiveness hinges on transparent communication between teams and management.
As such, reporting progress is crucial, especially when you consider the short-term development cycles being called for. Keeping the management teams informed will ensure that the projects stay on track for deadlines, budgets and features.
Having this sort of running communication is duly beneficial because executives can then better gauge the project’s trajectory If the project seems to be misaligned with the business growth strategies (see: not creating revenue), they can realign it or take appropriate actions.
Reporting within Scrum is a key component. If all of the involved parties are informed, they’re positioned to maximize the potential of agile development. For more information on the importance of reporting, watch the video from OpenView Labs featuring Scott Downey.
