Articles I've written

PURIFF: Scoping the Sprint Tests
In Scrum, each sprint produces an increment, which is a partial and potentially releasable product. To be releasable, the increment must meet all acceptance criteria and pass different categories of tests. Consequently, each sprint should consider all testing activities required for a releasable product. Unfortunately, during my work on different projects, I have observed that many teams focus only on a subset of testing activities during the sprint.

SPOC: Story POint Cost
I present SPOC as a metric to measure and track the cost of user stories and consequently the cost of Agile projects. I've developed this metric as an Agile/Scrum consultant with many clients and have used it in projects over the last three years.
