User Centered Scrum
Creating software is seen as a field of technology and logic and has become one of the best in ensuring high productivity due to the empiricism adopted by Agile work and the framework Scrum. Mandy states that software development is, at its core, a very creative process that drives innovation and has a massive impact on millions of people worldwide. You, as member of the development team, have the responsibility for the people who are actually going to use and be impacted by your software. But how can you embed this ‘user centered perspective’ in Scrum whilst maintaining high productivity?
