How It Is Done

Clear roles and a clear process of short cycles provide structure.

Clear roles:

  • the product owner (teacher, professor, administrator) provides the what and why,

  • the team (students) decides the how,

  • the team captain (student) serves and leads the team.

Clear process:

  • Planning: First students plan the whole project or curriculum.

  • Stand-up: Every meeting starts with a very brief stand-up to plan the work, then students do the work.

  • Review: at the end of the meeting there is a review where students present their work to each other.

  • Retrospective: at regular intervals students have a retrospective meeting where they reflect on how well they collaborate and identify how they can improve.
