Benefits of Scrum for Businesses

There are many benefits of following Scrum processes, tools, and having Scrum certified employees, which businesses can receive as a result of the framework focusing on continual feedback, performance appraisals, using daily testing, and planning processes, including:

  • Greater return on investment

  • Quicker time-to-market delivery and development of software

  • Reduced cost of production and less wastage of material and people resources

  • Enhanced software-based product delivery quality

  • Easy to promote stakeholder engagement due to the simple terminology and process-based framework of Scrum

  • Dominate the market share as a result of beating competitors to public product delivery

  • Projects completed quickly, efficiently, and within shorter time scales
