How Sprints Can Provide a Performance Boost to Microsoft Dynamics Implementation Projects
Using sprints or iterations in Microsoft Dynamics implementations can add great value to your Microsoft Dynamics projects. Whereas project teams using a traditional ‘waterfall' approach might identify specific tasks in a project plan, a team using an agile approach with sprints identifies and prioritizes requirements based on the amount of work that the project team is capable of delivering in a set period of time. The use of sprints may take some adjustment, but the benefits could surprise both your project teams and your clients.
A sprint is a "time-boxed" period of work that has a defined output by a self-organized team. In the world of Dynamics implementations the team would consist of both client and partner members. At the end of the sprint the "output" is reviewed with stakeholders at a sprint review meeting.
