Agile development: Scrum

Agile development: Scrum

As I am preparing for a next agile certificate, I recently read the updated Scrum Guide and made an easy-to-catch overview for myself. I thought you may want to use it too, so you can download it here:

A lot of people think when it comes to agile, that everything is allowed and everybody does what he/she wants. No, thats not true! Agile is not another word for chaos, it is more a solution to master complex problems which are often coming with moving targets, since you learn step-by-step. Agile development is a group of methods in which requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing and cross-functional teams (Wikipedia). According to the Scrum Guide, Scrum is defined as a framework within which people can address complex adaptive problems, while productively and creatively delivering products of the highest possible value.The theory of Scrum is easy to understand. As so often, the hardest part is to put it into practice and to keep it alive in an organization!
