SuperChoice Scrum Coaching
It can take a long time to get a project started, particularly when you're used to undertaking big, up-front design activities before commencing software development efforts.
SuperChoice engaged ZXM to provide expertise in user-experience (UX) and user-centred design in Scrum environments to reduce the lead time that it takes to kick-start its projects.
ZXM used collaborative workshop techniques with the team over the first few days of the proejct. These sessions were designed to generate an understanding of the consumers of the product and also the context its use.
ZXM first helped the team to document pragmatic personas and then employed a storymapping to quickly cover the main logical flow of the use of the product, its alternate flows, and then the feature sets and architecture as Epics.
ZXM then helped the team to break Epics into smaller, User Stories, with strong traceability to the context of the storymaps and the identified Personas.
Over only a few days, ZXM:
- Enabled the first full, end-to-end view of the Product Backlog sufficient to commence the project
- Did away with the need to undertake lengthy, up-front analysis activities
- Reduced the project's lead time by several weeks.
