Scrum Framework Recap

Scrum is an agile framework for developing, delivering, and sustaining complex products. It emphasizes iterative progress, adaptability, and collaboration among cross-functional teams.

Scrum Roles Recap

There are three primary roles in Scrum:

  1. Product Owner: Responsible for maximizing the value of the product and managing the product backlog.
  2. Scrum Master: Facilitates the Scrum process, coaches the team, and ensures adherence to the Scrum framework.
  3. Development Team: Self-organizing, cross-functional team responsible for delivering high-quality, potentially shippable increments.

Scrum Artifacts Recap

Scrum has three main artifacts:

  1. Product Backlog: A prioritized list of features, enhancements, and bug fixes managed by the Product Owner.
  2. Sprint Backlog: A list of tasks the Development Team commits to complete during a sprint.
  3. Increment: The sum of all completed product backlog items during a sprint, resulting in a potentially shippable product increment.

Scrum Events Recap

Scrum prescribes five key events:

  1. Sprint: A time-boxed period (typically 2-4 weeks) during which the Development Team works to complete a potentially shippable increment.
  2. Sprint Planning: A meeting where the team plans and commits to the work for the upcoming sprint.
  3. Daily Scrum: A short, daily meeting for the Development Team to synchronize activities and plan for the next 24 hours.
  4. Sprint Review: A meeting at the end of the sprint to inspect the increment and adapt the product backlog.
  5. Sprint Retrospective: A meeting after the sprint review to reflect on the past sprint and identify areas for improvement.

Scrum Values Recap

The five Scrum values are:

  1. Commitment: Dedication to achieving the team's goals.
  2. Focus: Concentrating on the work at hand and prioritizing the most valuable tasks.
  3. Openness: Sharing ideas, progress, and challenges with the team.
  4. Respect: Valuing each team member's contributions and treating one another professionally
