Scrum and Agile

What is Scrum?

Scrum is the most popular Agile framework. It is an adaptive, iterative, fast, fl­exible, and effective methodology 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. The Scrum framework, as defined in the SBOK™ Guide, is structured in such a way that it supports product and service development in all types of industries and in any type of project, irrespective of its complexity.

A key strength of Scrum lies in its use of cross-functional, self-organized, and empowered teams who divide their work into short, concentrated work cycles called Sprints. The focus of Scrum on value-driven delivery helps Scrum Teams deliver results as early in the project as possible.


Some of the key benefits of using Scrum in any project are:

  • Adaptability
  • Transparency
  • Continuous Feedback
  • Continuous Improvement
  • Faster Problem Resolution
  • Ef­ficient Development Process
  • Sustainable Pace
  • Early Delivery of High Value
  • Motivation
  • Effective Deliverables
  • Customer-Centric
  • High Trust Environment
  • Collective Ownership
  • Continuous Delivery of Value
  • High Velocity
  • Innovative Environment


The fi­gure below shows that Scrum is increasingly being applied outside of the traditional IT industry. Because of the ever-evolving technology and ever-changing socio-economic conditions, project management needs a framework like Scrum, which is highly adaptable and change-friendly.

Another reason for Scrum to have become widely popular is that the size of the company is no constraint in adopting the Scrum framework for project management. The fi­gure below shows the distribution of companies by employee count.
