Scrum in Under 10 Minutes
Scrum is the leading Agile development framework in use and this YouTube video does a great job in presenting an overview of Scrum in 10 minutes. Having recently participated in a two-day course learning the mechanics and dynamics of Scrum teams in order to become a Certified ScrumMaster, I thought this was a great presentation for anyone wanting a quick review of Scrum.
Scrum originated in a 1986 article in the Harvard Business Review titled “New New Product Development Game” that used rugby’s scrum as an approach to team product development.
Scrum is a framework that supports the 2001 Agile Manifesto’s radical ideas:
Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
Working software over comprehensive documentation
Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
Responding to change over following a plan
That is, while there is value in the items on
the right, we value the items on the left more.
This video covers the entire Scrum framework and gives a quick overview of Scrum Roles, Scrum Artifacts and Scrum Activities/Ceremonies. It is a great primer put together by the folks at Axosoft (formerly OnTime), an Application Development Life Cycle Management tool geared to Agile Scrum.
