What is Scrum?

Scrum (zn.): A framework within which people tackle complex, adaptive problems while producing products with the highest possible value in a productive and creative way.

Scrum is a framework that has been used since the 1990s to manage work on complex products. Scrum is not a process, technique or fixed method. Instead, it is a framework within which you can deploy the various processes and techniques. Scrum provides insight into the relative effectiveness of your product management and working techniques so that you can continuously improve the product, the team and the work environment.

In Scrum you work with a self-organizing and multidisciplinary development team in short cycles on concrete intermediates

We call these short cycles sprints. Each sprint consists of a number of regular meetings (referred to as “events” in the Scrum guide) that structure the process.

You also work in fixed roles (development team, product owner, scrum master and stakeholder) and make use of a number of tools, such as a product backlog and a scrum board, which we call lists (referred to in the Scrum guide as ‘artifacts’).
