Scrum and Agile in Startups

As a startup, you have probably heard that it is important that you work agile and have been recommended to follow the scrum model – and that is also how we work, however, we have adapted the scrum model so that it fits even better into our highly automated model and we have shaved off all unnecessary expenses.

Tikweb’s focus is to ensure a finished product in 6 months – with minimal expenses along the way. Many will think this is impossible, but our experience with many projects is that we can deliver this every time, as long as our extremely agile version of scrum is followed!

As sales get underway and turnover increases, it will be natural to turn down the development pressure a little and place even greater emphasis on testing and operation.

Roadmap for a typical Tikweb SaaS rollout

  • 3 months of dialogue and review of the owner’s agreement, preparation of sketches, and description of the system.

  • 6 months of development and testing – we run in explosive weekly sprints and release a major functionality in the system every week.

  • 3 months with customer testing, support development, training of the salesperson, on-boarder, and supporter as well as initiation of the marketing campaign. We are switching to 14-day sprints with a greater focus on testing.

  • 1 year has passed – the business is up and running and we are switching to monthly sprints so that the rest of the business can keep up with the technical development.

Remember that the above is an example and our general recommendation – we can continue in weekly sprints forever, but even among entrepreneurs and zealots, it is very rare that we meet others who can! And even if you can, it’s not healthy 🙂
