Scrum is one of the most popular sets of practices, referred to as ‘frameworks’, of Agile.

This framework uses multidisciplinary teams that are commissioned to create something together. This team is called a ‘scrum’, a rugby reference.

Each team has someone who is responsible for managing it, called a ‘scrum master’, and someone who represents the needs of the customer, called a ‘product owner’.

The teams set about to solve a problem or create a solution through a series of short bursts of very focused development, called a Sprint. These sprints, typically two weeks in length, build to a final release of a solution, called an ‘epic’.

The key to the success of these types of agile frameworks is that these sprints create Learning Cycles that allow the team members to reflect and adjust, based on a deeper understanding of their challenge and changing customer needs.
