Agile Project Management For Dummies
Nowadays the most popular framework is agile in software development, is an iterative approach that has at its core the sprint .the scrum terms for iteration. Scrums teams use inspection throughout an agile project to ensure that the team meets the goals of each of the sprint.
In the scrum approach, the project requirements divide into each sprint. Daily scrum meetings help to keep the project on target on regular inspection and reviews and At the end of every sprint, you hold a sprint retrospective to look for ways to improve the next sprint. the whole agile process looks something like this.
Within each sprint, the development team builds and tests a functional part of the product until the product owner accepts it and the functionality becomes a potentially shippable product. When one sprint finishes, another sprint starts. Scrum teams deliver product features in increments at the end of each sprint. A product release occurs at the end of a sprint or after several sprints.

A core principle of the sprint is its cyclical nature: The sprint, as well as the processes within it, repeats over and over, as shown:
- You use the tenets of inspection and adaptation on a daily basis as part of a scrum project:
- During a sprint, you conduct constant inspections to assess progress toward the sprint goal, and consequentially, toward the release goal.
- You hold a daily scrum meeting to organize the day by reviewing what the team completed yesterday and what it will work on today. Essentially, the scrum team inspects its progress toward the sprint goal.
- At the end of the sprint, you use a retrospective meeting to assess performance and plan necessary adaptations.
