The SCRUM methodology relies on the incremental development of a software application while maintaining a completely transparent list of upgrade or correction demands to be implemented (backlog). It involves frequent deliveries, usually every four weeks, and the client receives a perfectly operational application that includes more and more features every time. This is why, the method relies on iterative developments at a constant rhythm of 2-4 weeks. Upgrades can therefore be more easily integrated than when using a V-cycle.
This method requires four types of meetings :
The advantage of this method consists in reducing the documentation to the minimum in order to gain in productivity. The idea is to write only the minimum documentation which allows to save the history of the decisions taken on the project and to easily perform interventions on the software when it goes into the maintenance phase.
