Arguably the leading Agile framework and growing in popularity at an exponential rate by the day, Scrum is a framework for developing and sustaining complex products. The Scrum framework allows complex adaptive problems to be addressed, whilst delivering products of the highest possible value and quality, within the shortest possible time.
With interest in Scrum growing daily, it is no wonder that it is becoming the most in-demand Agile framework, with more than 5000 professionals/month worldwide, gaining their certifications in Scrum at all levels. And these are only the people that that took and passed the exams!
Scrum’s product delivery results speak for themselves. With more and more companies turning away from cumbersome and costly Waterfall methods on a daily basis and looking towards Scrum for product delivery, the uptake of Scrum is tipped to grow exponentially over the next 5 years.
Don’t get left behind. Agilistix can you provide you with expert Scrum Coaching and Scrum Mentoring to help you to establish and use Scrum within your organisation.
Not a Process
Being non-prescriptive and technology agnostic, Scrum should not be confused with a process or a technique for building products. Scrum is a framework within which you can employ various processes and techniques for completing complex projects.
Scrum provides for iterative and incremental delivery of finished and tested product in fixed, time-boxed cycles throughout the whole product development lifecycle.
Originally devised for complex software development projects, Scrum can also be implemented for non-IT projects and product development as it is suitable for any complex, innovative scope of work.
There is an infinite range of opportunities, across a wide range of industries and an even wider range of projects and products, where Scrum can innovatively enable rapid and cheap delivery.
Scrum grew out of empirical process control theory, or empiricism. The fundamental principle of Empiricism is that knowledge comes from experience and making decisions based on what is known.
Scrum uses an iterative and incremental approach to optimize predictability and control risk.
For newcomers, Scrum can be deceptively simple because, on the face of it, there does not appear to be that much to learn. Whilst this is true, the real challenge comes with implementing Scrum on real projects. It is only after gaining experience of working on a number of different, complex Scrum projects and learning from mistakes, that actual benefits of Scrum become very apparent. Thus, the emphasis on empiricism.
Responding to Change
One of the greatest benefits of Scrum is that it not only allows you to respond to change, it embraces change.
Embracing change empowers your organisation to deliver exactly what your client or user base wants, when they want it and how they want it. This should not be confused with scope creep, which really pertains to the more rigid non-Agile, Waterfall processes, where scope is defined up front at the beginning of a project.
In order to be Agile, you need to be able to respond to change.
A Way of Thinking
Scrum is more than a collection of practices, it is a way of thinking.
Scrum requires a culture of empowerment, self-organising teams, continuous change and improvement. This culture requires support at management-level downwards in order to instil the ethos into an organisation that can make it more Agile.
Without management support, it would be extremely difficult to implement Scrum within an organisation and enable it drive business to perform to its full potential.
Agilistix is experienced at working with board-level stakeholders downwards and empowering them with the knowledge and acceptance of the benefits that a planned implementation of Scrum will bring to their company.
