What is Scrum?
Scrum is a framework utilizing an agile mindset for developing, delivering, and sustaining complex products, with an initial emphasis on software development. However, it has been used in other fields, including research, sales, marketing, and advanced technologies. The fundamental unit of Scrum is a team consisting of a product owner, a Scrum Master, and developers. The team is self-managing, cross-functional, and focuses on one objective at a time: the product goal.
Scrum is a lightweight, iterative and incremental framework for managing complex work. The framework challenges assumptions of the traditional, sequential approach to product development. It enables teams to self-organize by encouraging physical co-location or close online collaboration of all team members and daily face-to-face communication among all team members and disciplines involved.
