What is Scrum?

Scrum has become one of the leading methods in agile project management in recent years. This approach has established itself as a method for the agile management of projects in all industries.

Scrum is a process model in project management and, as an agile method, is based on the roles and artefacts defined by Jeff Sutherland and Ken Schwaber. Scrum consists of only a few rules. These describe five activities, three artefacts and three roles that make up the essential aspects of Scrum and are described in the Scrum Guide.

Scrum Sprint

Scrum is based on three pillars

Transparency: Progress and obstacles of a project are recorded regularly and visible for all.

Review: Project results and functionalities are delivered and evaluated regularly.

Adaptation: Requirements for the product, plans and procedures are not set once and for all, but are continuously adapted in detail. 

The goal is the fast  development of high-quality products according to a formulated vision. Scrum does not reduce the complexity of the task, but structures it into smaller and less complex components, the increments.

The role of a Scrum Masters

The Scrum Master takes on a central role within a Scrum team. While the product owner works together with the customer on the deliverable of the project and the development team is entrusted with the implementation of the project, the Scrum Master takes on the role of a kind of coach.

He is responsible for the adherence to Scrum within the project, but also acts as a speaking tube into the organisation. Thus, he communicates the project vision as well as the agile management approach. The Scrum Master has the task of protecting the team from external influences and ensures that the team functions.
