Agile & Scrum – Sharing experiences

We are proud of our teams which are consisted of bright, competent people empowered to deliver the best and share their knowledge with others.

With a goal to transfer knowledge and to share experiences and ideas, we held an internal event at our offices. The presentation was prepared by our JAVA Team including Goran Boceski, Viktor Gjorgjievski, Ana Sârbescu, Ana Janevska, Dimitar Gavrilov, and Sveto Avramovski. The team gave a detailed presentation on the newest processes and techniques used in working with Agile & Scrum and how they adapt their daily activities in order for everything to work smoothly.

“Most developers already know what Scrum is, but maybe they’ve never used it in their development process, or they’ve been using it, but without much success. The core of this presentation is to show how we are using Scrum and how we changed it so it can fit our purposes. We tried to explain why we did some of the changes, like, why we use pen-and-paper-board, why we introduced speaking token and so on. We think that by telling these stories we may encourage our colleagues to start using Scrum or help others that are already using it. Finally, we also hope to gather feedback so we can continue improving our Scrum process.”- Goran Boceski, Software Engineer and main speaker at the event.

They were explaining the principles of Agile and Scrum methodologies, the way they use their Scrum board, what is a sprint, stages of a task, etc. Also, an interesting discussion was started on using regular whiteboards vs. using a digital board and on how to coordinate the tasks between the team members.

“Something to point out is that the presentation was interesting and useful for everyone, not just for software developers. During Goran’s speech, I really liked the short discussion regarding whiteboard (physical one) vs. online scrum board. They were talking about how the whiteboard and face-to-face communication helps them feel like a real team. Additionally, it was interesting to hear how your name and a task written on a sticky note, pinned on the table, psychologically affected people’s minds and performance. The discussion caught my attention and encouraged me to research more on the subject.”- Simona Ristovska, HR Recruiter Assistant.

After the presentation, we had an interesting discussion with a Q&A session and many interesting ideas were shared accompanied by some sweets and drinks.

“The presentation was very useful for each team role included during the software development solutions. Also, during the discussion, we shared various experiences using Scrum methodology on other projects and teams. And finally, there was a time for socializing and getting to know with the colleagues.”- Marjan Janeski, Software Engineer.

We hope to continue having these transfer knowledge activities, so the next event will be open for everyone who wants to participate, from beginners to professionals, but not only in the IT industry. As we learned, these methodologies can be used in many areas, even in accounting!

We would like to thank our JAVA team for their participation and to wish them to be as innovative, creative, fun and excellent at their work, as they have been so far!
