Scrum is one of several Agile frameworks, very popular with businesses, especially the software industry. It is an iterative, highly collaborative framework designed to address complex challenges with the help of clearly defined roles and responsibilities, delivering products of most value to the customer.
It does not propose to do all the heavy lifting but iteratively achieving small goals, constantly reviewing the situation and updating the current status of the challenge at hand, thus requiring constant meetings and quick, short deliverables called sprints. The comprehensive guide written by co-creators Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland explains Scrum clearly and in detail. You can find detailed information about Scrum at The Scrum Guide.
Scrum proposes small teams with almost no hierarchy to achieve things quickly and in succession, improving every time while keeping the focus of sprint goals. The team comprises of a Product Owner, a Scrum Master and several developers.
The Product Owner is a role or a person and not a group, who is primarily accountable for the final product and its success. The Scrum Master is a Scrum methodology practitioner as defined in the Scrum Guide and one who drives the team through sprints also keeping track of the sprint backlog. Developers are the brain behind all the groundwork. They discuss and agree to sprints and achieve sprint goals on an almost daily basis.
In short, Scrum requires a Scrum Master to encourage the creation of an environment where
- ZThe Product Owner keeps track of work towards solving a complex problem on a Product Backlog.
- ZThe team of developers turns in some work towards solving the problem in a unified effort called Sprint. This results in value increment in the Sprint.
- ZThe Scrum Master inspects the results and adjusts for the next sprint.
Scrum Guide describes a Product Owner as an individual responsible for delivering value to the customer, thereby delivering a product that maximizes value. A Product Owner is typically a key stakeholder in the product and shapes the team’s vision as far as the product and the value it delivers to the customer is concerned. It is usually a lead user in the system, someone from marketing, product management or solutions team with a good understanding of the customer, the market, the competitors and other challenges.
The Product Owner is responsible for effective Product Backlog management which includes, Developing and communicating the product goal, Creating and communicating product backlog, Ordering product backlog items, Ensuring product backlog is understood by the team.
