Understanding Scrum



What is Scrum?

  • An agile software development framework.
  • Requirements are captured as items in a list of product backlog
  • Work is structured in cycles of work called sprints, iterations of work that are typically two to four weeks in duration.
  • Sprint is analogous to Extreme Programming Iterations
  • During each sprint, teams pull from a prioritized list of customer requirements, called user stories, so that the features that are developed first are of the highest value to the customer.
  • At the end of each sprint, a potentially shippable product is delivered.
