Agile Project Management : The Scrum Framework

Scrum is a basic structure or a set of guidelines defined to build and deliver valuable products. It is widely defined as an iterative or incremental process framework to build complex products of highest possible value.

Using Scrum, small improvements are made to the product in pieces, also known as product increments. The first product increment is commonly called MVP (Minimum Viable Product). This is a product increment with just enough features that make it usable and viable. The purpose of a MVP is to seek early feedback from the customer and adapt based on the feedback.

In Scrum, the team always work on the highest priority items first. The work is performed in short, time boxed iterations. Each iteration begins when the team aligns on a subset of the highest priority items that it can complete in that iteration. Each iteration ends when the team has delivered a potentially shippable product increment of the product. The team delivers value to the customer at the end of each iteration or a time boxed cycle.

What are the benefits of Scrum? How is Scrum different from plan-driven sequential development approach? What are Scrum roles, ceremonies, artifacts, and rules? How do we write good User Stories? What is Technical Debt? Why Estimate? How do we communicate team’s progress? ……..and much more.
