Abstract: This paper reviews the evolution of a senior level, live-client project development capstone class in the Analytics and Information Systems department of an AACSB accredited College of Business. The paper traces changes in methodologies and technologies leading to the current Scrum based approach, using ASP.NET Model-View-Controller, MVC, as the development platform. The paper discusses how Scrum is used in a class that only meets three times a week for 55 minutes each time and how the ASP.NET MVC approach to development fits nicely with the Scrum approach to project management.

Keywords: ASP.NET MVC, Capstone course, Pedagogy, Scrum, Scrum Project, Scrum Project
