What is Scrum?

Scrum is a framework for using Agile, a project management method based on the idea of being adaptive to change. Scrum is particularly suited to complex projects and divides the project process into a series of sprints lasting up to 4 weeks, where each stage of the project is completed quickly. In addition, Scrum teams are empowered to make their decisions without the need for management approval, based on real-time events and information.

Case Study

At computer chip maker Intel, the Product Development Engineering (PDE) group was often under tremendous pressure to deliver on time and according to requirements, while not having much control over deadlines, scope, or deliverables. This was resulting in missed deadlines, long work weeks and high staff turnover rates.

The sub-teams of PDE decided to try Scrum in order to improve their approach to product development. They formed seven Scrum teams and began with one Scrum Master managing all of them. After three months, an eighth team began using Scrum, and three more Scrum Masters were added. After five months, an additional five Scrum teams were added. This approach meant that Scrum was introduced into the organisation in a consistent way, and not too much change was introduced at once.

Introducing Scrum provided a number of substantial benefits. The Acceptance Criteria demanded by the method provided the group with a tangible way to measure whether a project was done or not. They also managed to cut down on the long working weeks of the past, by making sprints (intense periods of work) last nine days, so every second weekend was outside of a sprint. This took pressure off the teams and increased morale. In addition, communication improved and missed schedules were almost eliminated altogether.

Overall, Scrum turned Intel’s PDE from a command and planning-based organisation into one that was able to continually adapt and self-organise, resulting in reduced development times, better performance and happier employees.
