4. Daily Communication
Can an agency provide me with clear communication and line of sight to my team?
Scrums.com ensures that your team and all communication are fully synchronous. We achieve this by giving you full access to your team and tools (Slack, Jira, Client Portal, Repobot) with live tracking and updates. Along with this, we invite you to daily scrum ceremonies and all relevant meetings. Essentially, we become a bolt-on of your business.
Agency Communication with Agencies can be tough. Firstly, you need to make sure that they are proficient in English. Secondly, there is often a lack of customer focus making it difficult for you to remain a top priority.
