Buy Scrum A Design Phase

For years Scrum has existed without a design phase. Unfortunate Scrum teams were forced to do design while coding and testing.

How nuts is that?

Without an upfront design phase, Scrum teams missed out on the opportunity to go months without delivering any actual functionality.

Similarly, design errors were caught soon after they were made meaning teams lost out on the joy of working excessive overtime to re-architect major subsystems under deadline pressure.

It's time to fix this.

It's time to make Scrum a full-on methodology rather than just a framework.

Just as peanut butter needs jelly, Scrum needs a big, upfront design phase. Please contribute today.
