We have already had User Story as most popular tool. But this is not the end. Today about Iterations: the small and big ones, these that are completed and those that are never stopped.
Iteration is a period of 1 to 4 weeks. During this time Customer needs to decide what is the most important at this moment. 4 weeks is also called the Sprint but we prefer Iteration as it’s stronger option.
Iteration is not only about programming but also about tests and more. Actually tests are run before the programming phase.
We also have to mention about infinite period. In this case Iteration is one, only User Story has to be completed in some period of time and then disappears. In this place another User Story appears. Customer tells about that User Story and if it’s good we start with the new one.
And what do you think about this?
