Chapter 3. Using Scrum for release management
This chapter covers
If Agile ALM is about creating and tracking software, in which phases do you create the software? Using functional release management, you set up a guideline for how and when you’ll provide releases and how you’ll assign content to them. Together, functional release management and technical release management support and enable the development.
In this chapter, we’ll talk about the release as the central unit in the development process. After covering the basics and core aspects of functional release management, we’ll talk about vehicles that can support you in communicating your general release approach. I’ve based my release management approach on Scrum. This method is popular, in part because it’s simple and easy to implement.
