ZMSLabs Howto

(still in progress)

Recommended Proposal Layout

  1. Who? Document Identification / Contact of proposer
  2. Why? Background / Overview / Problems
  3. What? Objectives / Benefit Statement / Motivation
  4. How? Scope / Proposed Solution / Deliverables
  5. Caveats? Assumptions and constraints / Risk Factors
  6. Funding? Estimates / Costs
  7. Status? Participants / Actions / Progress

Recommended Mapping to Agilo for Scrum Tickets

  • create a new ticket as a Requirement
    • to record a needed Feature
    • by describing the Why/What?? (more...)
    • assign a Milestone (planned release)
    • define the Business Value Points (expected satisfaction by the product owner)
  • create linked ticket(s) to a Requirement as User Stories
    • to record suggested Approaches
    • by describing the How/Caveats?? (more...)
    • assign a Sprint (planned iteration)
    • define Importance (impact and priority)
  • plan a Sprint (more...) for a Milestone (planned release) in the Roadmap
    • confirm commitment to a certain amount of User Stories
    • to successfully implement, test, document and integrate during this sprint/iteration
    • define the User Story Points (estimated effort by the development team)
  • create linked ticket(s) to a User Story as Tasks
    • to record development Jobs
    • by describing the Actions to do (more...)
    • set a concerned Component
    • define the Remaining Time and the involved Resources
  • create a new ticket while research and development as Bug
    • to record a Defect
    • by describing a Problem with a deployed release
    • set a concerned Component
    • assign a Milestone (the according release)
    • assign a Sprint (to add it to an planned sprint/iteration)
