What is Scrum?

Scrum is an agile project management approach that combines an empirical process model with clearly defined roles for the management and execution of that process. Within the Scrum framework, there are three roles: The Product Owner, the ScrumMaster, and the Team.

Work is performed iteratively and incrementally within repeatable 30-day work cadences known as “Sprints.” This process is managed through three primary meetings: Sprint Planning, which occurs at the beginning of the cycle and determines which work the Team will tackle; Daily Standups, which bring Team members together for a few minutes each day during the Sprint to communicate progress and dependencies; and Sprint Review, which occurs at the end of the cycle and is used to assess whether Sprint goals have been met. Finally, the process is managed through a handful of planning and progress artifacts, including “backlogs” (for planning) and “burndowns” (for reporting).


One thought on “What is Scrum?

  1. Great helpful information. I’d like to add that if it’s possible to add some more details on “What is Scrum?” topic, that would be awsome! I am not clear on what “backlog” and “burndowns” are. So, please add some more extra info when possible.
    Thank you!
