Backyard Hair Cut
It was Monday morning and while heading to work those familiar feelings of frustration began to rise: How was I ever going to get my yard work done?! At the end of every weekend I discovered that I spent more time trying to decide what to work on than actually working. How was I ever going to get to re-landscaping the front yard, prepping my vegetable garden for fall and maintaining the back yard so that the kids and pets could play? At the peak of my frustrations I discovered the Agile Scrum Framework.

Recently, buzzwords like Scrum and Agile were being tossed around the office. After educating myself by watching tutorials and reading, I immediately thought of my yard and how I could use the Agile Scrum Framework to accomplish my work!

Agile is a concept for software development cycle defined in the 80s by Hirotaka Takeuchi and Ikujiro Nonaka. Scrum is one way to adopt Agile that allows developers to be more flexible in reaching attainable goals. It breaks down like this: A team of cross discipline producers get together with a Project Owner and Scrum Master (a Scrum Master makes sure things stay on track but doesn't do any actual work) and decide what can be completed in a sprint (interval of time). Before sprinting user stories are used to define what needs to be done. Those user stories are broken down into tasks that can be accomplished during the sprint. These are backlog items.
