Using Scrum and Agile development well for small mixed-discipline teams e.g. startups Edited

Michael Mar 26, 2019

I am part of a small startup team. We use Scrum and Jira to drive our technical projects.

The team covers many disciplines, from various flavours of software engineering to electrical engineering through to research. We could be described as a mixed-discipline  team that works on individual projects. The individual projects are part of our overarching goals: make our products better and expand their capabilities.


If possible we would like to improve how we use Scrum and Agile development in general. 


We are interested in learning from the experiences of other small mixed-discipline teams.

 - How have these teams adjusted the standard Scrum process framework?

 - What has worked well and what needs work?

 - What have been the benefits and challenges of using Scrum?

 - How do you know when Scrum is working well?

 - How do we know we are getting the most out of the process?


At the moment we don't know what we don't know.

We also have a diversity of scrum experience, from ninjas to newcomers. Should some of the newcomers be trained or should we seek training as a group?
