Can day to day work of Scrum development team be traced back to Agile / Scrum values and principles ?

Could you add some specifics around what you mean by day to day work?

If this is a Scrum Development Team as you have stated, then day to day things like a Daily Scrum tie back directly to Scrum, but also to Agile Principles like "The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is face-to-face conversation." A Scrum Development Team would be cross-functional and recognize no sub-teams, so any analysis and testing that the Development Team does (in addition to coding) would tie back to Scrum principles. Some other Agile Principles that should tie directly into day to day should be "Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project" and "Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility."

If you are speaking more generically about the traditional coding work of a programmer, research for future PBIs would be part of Product Backlog Refinement and the principle that "Working software is the primary measure of progress" would be applicable.

This all just attempting to understand your concern, but with more specifics the answer could be more tailored.

Hi Abhinav,

I'm not a developer, so I don't know the development best practices too well. But from my experience, agile values don't necessarily affect what you do but rather how you do it: Agile or not, you want to create an extraordinary, functional product for your customer. So the tasks are similar. But with an agile mindset you'll create structures in which you can see problems and conflicts early, you'll have the courage to perceive them and you'll have the motivation to actively solve them. And in your methods you'll chose direct feedback rather than a written bug report, you'll enhance self-organization (which includes self-discipline and self-control) and ... and ... and ...

Just my thoughts on this topic.

Best regards,
