What is Scrum?

According to, Scrum is a framework within which people can address complex adaptive problems while productively and creatively delivering products of the highest possible value.

Scrum is today's most popular Agile project management and project development methodology/framework. It is an adaptive, iterative, efficient, and effective framework designed to deliver significant value quickly and throughout a project. Scrum ensures transparency in communication and creates an environment of collective accountability and continuous progress.

It is a lightweight framework that helps people, teams, and organisations generate value through adaptive solutions for complex problems. Scrum co-creators Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland have written The Scrum Guide to explain Scrum clearly and succinctly. This Guide contains the definition of Scrum. This definition consists of Scrum’s accountabilities, events, artifacts, and the rules that bind them together. In a nutshell, Scrum requires a Scrum Master to foster an environment where:

  1. A Product Owner orders the work for a complex problem into a Product Backlog.

  2. The Scrum Team turns a selection of the work into an Increment of value during a Sprint.

  3. The Scrum Team and its stakeholders inspect the results and adjust for the next Sprint.

  4. Repeat.

Why learn Scrum?

Widely accepted certifications and Scrum training helps individuals and organisations complete projects faster and more successfully.

And several organisations around the globe are accepting Scrum as a primary project management framework for their projects, especially when they operate in a dynamic business environment.

Booking and sitting Scrum training courses equips professionals with the skills needed to participate in and lead projects that follow the Scrum framework.

  • For individuals - The growing popularity and acceptability of Scrum has created a great demand for Scrum-certified professionals in the job market. Grab the opportunity and join this growing community.

  • For organisations - Scrum-certified professionals help organisations with improved an level of project management that leads to increased ROI.

How does learning Scrum increase ROI?

One of the key characteristics of any project is the uncertainty of results or outcomes. It is impossible to guarantee project success at completion, irrespective of the size or complexity of a project. Considering this uncertainty of achieving success, it is therefore important to start delivering results as early in the project as possible. This early delivery of results, and thereby value, provides an opportunity for reinvestment and proves the worth of the project to interested stakeholders. By signing up for Scrum courses, you and your team can:

  1. Understand what adds value to customers and users and to prioritise the high value requirements on the top of the Prioritised Product Backlog.

  2. Decrease uncertainty and constantly address risks that can potentially decrease value if they materialise. Also work closely with project stakeholders showing them product increments at the end of each Sprint, enabling effective management of changes.

  3. Create Deliverables based on the priorities determined by producing potentially shippable product increments during each Sprint so that customers start realising value early on in the project.

In Scrum projects, User Stories are ranked in order of priority which is an effective method for determining the desired User Stories for each iteration or release of the product or service. The purpose is to create a simple, single list with the goal of prioritising features, rather than being distracted by multiple prioritisation schemes.

This simple list also provides a basis for incorporating changes and identified risks when necessary. Each change or identified risk can be inserted in the list based on its priority relative to the other User Stories in the list. Typically, new changes will be included at the expense of features that have been assigned a lower priority.

Minimum Marketable Features (MMF) are also defined, so that the first release or iteration happens as early as possible, leading to increased ROI.

How does learning Scrum improve project delivery and client acceptance?

A project is a collaborative enterprise to either create new products or services or to deliver results as defined in the Project Vision Statement. Usually, the results generated by projects are expected to create some form of business or service value.

Since value is a primary reason for any organisation to move forward with a project, Scrum focuses on Value-driven Delivery. Scrum facilitates delivery of value very early on in the project and continues to do so throughout the project lifecycle. Delivering value is ingrained in the Scrum framework.

The concept of Value-driven Delivery in Scrum makes it very attractive for business stakeholders and senior management. This concept is very different when compared with traditional project management models where:

  1. Requirements are not prioritised by business value.

  2. Changing requirements after project initiation is difficult and can only be done through a time-consuming change management process.

  3. Value is realised only at the end of the project when the final product or service is delivered.

Why learn Scrum vs. traditional project management frameworks?

Traditional project management emphasises on conducting detailed upfront planning for the project with higher priority for fixing the scope, cost and schedule - and managing those parameters. Whereas Scrum encourages data-based, iterative decision making in which the primary focus is on delivering products that satisfy customer requirements.

To deliver the greatest amount of value in the shortest amount of time, Scrum promotes prioritisation and Time-boxing over fixing the scope, cost and schedule of a project. An important feature of Scrum is self-organisation, which allows the individuals who are actually doing the work to estimate and take ownership of tasks.

Scrum is also being used in many Fortune 500 companies such as Apple, IBM, HP, Bank of America, AT&T, Dell, Verizon, Lockheed Martin, and PepsiCo.
