Scrum is an Agile framework/ Agile development methodology for completing complex projects, used by Fortune 500 companies around the world. Scrum is a subset of Agile and it is a lightweight process framework for agile development, and the most widely-used one. A “process framework” is a particular set of practices that must be followed in order for a process to be consistent with the framework. The Scrum Alliance exists to transform the way we tackle complex projects by bringing the Scrum framework and agile principles beyond software development. Scrum was formalised for software development projects, but it works well with innovative scope of work. The Scrum framework is simple and its possibilities are endless.
Build The Scrum framework within minutes:
- A product owner creates a prioritized wish list called a product backlog.
- While sprint planning, the team pulls a small chunk from the top of that wish list, a sprint backlog, and decides how to implement those pieces.
- The team has a certain amount of time — a sprint (usually two to four weeks) — to complete its work, but it meets each day to assess its progress (daily Scrum).
- Along the way, the Scrum Master keeps the team focused on its goal.
- At the end of the sprint, the work should be potentially shippable: ready to hand to a customer, put on a store shelf, or show to a stakeholder.
- The sprint ends with a sprint review and retrospective.
- As the next sprint begins, the team chooses another chunk of the product backlog and begins working again.
The cyclic process repeats until enough items in the product backlog are completed, the budget is depleted, or a deadline arrives. It depends entirely to the project. The scrum ensures that the most valuable work has been completed when the project ends.
