  • Adopt certain agile practices and integrate them into a traditional, predictive management framework.
  • Divide a traditional project into a series of mini-projects called iterations, or sprints.
  • Prepare the groundwork for a Scrum project.
  • Appreciate just how visible Scrum projects are, thanks to extensive use of “information radiators”.
  • Exploit feedback loops to improve both the product or service being produced and the team’s way of working.
