Scrum Theory


Scrum is centred around three principles that must be adhered to throughout the entirety of the Sprints, including:

Transparency - A common language is utilised in Scrum, enabling individuals both interior and exterior to the project (e.g. stakeholders) to engage with and appreciate the progress of each sprint. The achievement of each sprint must be well documented in order to justify the value of the Scrum framework to investors and stakeholders, and to ensure that all members of the development team are aware of their role in the development of the product


Inspection - Tasks and work conducted by the Scrum team should be frequently assessed to ensure that they are progressing towards the sprint goal. The inspection should be conducted by an individual exterior to the development team to ensure there is no bias, however they should not interrupt or distract individuals away from the task in hand during their inspections. The results of the inspection enhance transparency and clarity of operational achievements, whilst establishing what resources may be required for future Scrum sprints.


Adaptation - If the inspection reveals that a process or task completed by the Scrum development team deviates away from the sprint goal, then they must instruct adaptations to prevent such work from having a detrimental effect on the final product delivery. Adaptation ensures that deleterious processes are stopped before they waste resources and valuable sprint time.
