Three Pillars of Scrum

  • Three Pillars of Scrum

    The three pillars of Scrum that uphold every implementation of empirical process control are:

    • Transparency
    • Inspection
    • Adaptation

    These three pillars are a fundamental of Scrum and are explained here.

  • Transparency


    Scrum promotes transparency as it requires significant aspects of the process to be visible to those responsible for the outcome. These aspects are defined by a common standard so observers can share a common understanding of what is being seen.

    For example: A common language referring to the process must be shared by all participants A common definition of “Done” must be shared by those performing the work and those accepting the work product.



    Scrum artefacts must be frequently inspected and progress towards a goal to detect undesirable variances. The frequency of inspection should not be such that the inspection gets in the way of the work. Inspections are most beneficial when diligently performed by skilled inspectors at the point of work.



    If an inspector determines that one or more aspects of a process deviate outside acceptable limits, and that the resulting product will be unacceptable, the process or the material being processed must be adjusted. An adjustment must be made as soon as possible to minimize further deviation.
