What is Scrum?

Scrum is a lightweight, agile framework for delivering complex, product-focused work. It helps people manage and succeed in environments with high levels of uncertainty and change. Unlike more traditional or linear frameworks that promote upfront planning and analysis, Scrum focuses on iterative developing solutions to complex problems.

Scrum is a versatile product-delivery approach that originated in the world of software, and more recently has been utilised across many diverse industries and uses. For example, it is used by marketing, sales, HR, finance and many other business domains. Scrum is also pivotal to some of the popular scaling frameworks such as SAFe, where the team-level work is carried out using Scrum roles and events.

Scrum is known to be simple to learn and use. It helps people to work iteratively and incrementally using an empirical approach. Empiricism encourages increased transparency, inspection and adaptation. Its design exposes issues and promotes progress as early as possible, encouraging change that will increase value delivery.

Scrum consists of three accountabilities, five events, three artifacts, three commitments and additional values, rules and recommendations. These help to guide people's relationships and interactions to maximise the value delivered when doing complex work.
