Shifting from traditional product-development processes like Waterfall to modern Agile frameworks such as Scrum can be a challenge for UX. We must learn a whole new set of nomenclature, adapt to new timeframes in which to complete our research or design work, and step outside of our comfort zones to collaborate with cross-functional partners, many of whom we’ve never worked with before. Once we start making these changes, we quickly realize there’s a lot more to Agile than simply working in time-boxed sprints. Unlike Waterfall, Scrum has many recurring meetings that are typically referred to as ceremonies, including daily standups (also known as daily Scrum), backlog refinement (also known as backlog grooming), sprint planning, demos, and retrospectives. As UX people move to Agile, they may wonder whether they need to attend each ceremony and what they should do to adequately prepare and participate.
