The Scrum Guide

Scrum (n): A framework within which people can address complex adaptive problems, while productively and creatively delivering products of the highest possible value.

Scrum is:
  • Lightweight
  • Simple to understand
  • Difficult to master

 

The Scrum Guide™, The Definitive Guide to Scrum: The Rules of the Game, developed and sustained by the founders of Scrum – Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland – contains the definition of Scrum, including roles, events, artifacts, and the rules that bind them together.

Scrum Alliance®, along with Scrum Inc., and Scrum.org endorse and support of The Scrum Guide because we believe this makes the most sense for the Scrum community. This Guide is based on the principles on which Scrum was founded and offers Scrum practitioners worldwide, a common standard and understanding of the foundations of Scrum.
