Our experts will help you to find the solution that best matches your situation
A transition to Scrum helps you to make the most of your IT organisaton
In complex and changing IT environments, Scrum can contribute to fast and efficient software development that increases the value of your business.
Scrum contributes to:
- Quality and security
- Finding the righ solution
- Sustainability and assurance
Scrum and Testing
The Scrum approach is to ‘design a little, build a little, test a little’. This type of incremental approach necessitates ongoing, or at least very frequent, testing. Regression tests are more important now than ever. Automated testing is essential if the team wants to continue delivering business value with a short time-to-market.
Scrum and Business Analysis
If the business analysis process is well organised, stakeholders can really make common cause with the development team, with the process supporting the Product Owner in preparing the next sprint. Business analysis expertise is required to keep the product backlog complete and updated.
Scrum and Management
If product owners and developers are aware that making software work is about more than functionality alone, the Scrum team will start focusing more on management aspects and life-cycle management. This results in ‘Agile Management’: a continuous focus on the value of improving manageability.
Effectiveness and assurance
A focus on effectiveness means using Scrum elements from various disciplines to assure quality and acceptance. Our Valori Agile specialists take control of the process and facilitate objective quality assurance, clearly assigned roles and transparent project directorship.

In the spotlight
End-to-end integration in scaled agile projects. What types of issues might you encounter during end to end testing when working with several Scrum teams within your organisation? Agile expert and trainer Derk-Jan de Grood teamed up with Bits&Chips to write the e-book Agile in de echte wereld, starten met Scrum (‘Agile in the Real World: Getting Started with Scrum’) on this very topic.
Scrum: your product insert
Scrum provides instant relief for network congestion, low innovation, slow-moving projects, underproductivity and thwarted communication.
Provided your overall health condition is adequate and you have the basic supports in place, Scrum has an immediate positive effect on the software development process. When it comes to the areas of analysis, testing, management and overall control, results may vary. You should therefore always consult the Valori package insert, monitor your basic system health, and anticipate any side effects.
