About Scrum

Scrum is the basis of most Agile product delivery in the world today. It is a simple, elegant and very effective way for development teams and their customer – their Product Owner – to collaborate and deliver value to their sponsoring business in short, focused bursts of activity.

Scrum: “That absolute alignment of purpose and trust
is something that creates greatness”

Jeff Sutherland (co-creator of Scrum)
