Scrum Management is a subset of Agile Project Management and is defined as a methodology for administering software delivery that comes under the broad category of Agile Project Management.

Now, what is Agile Project Management?

Agile Project Management is a repetitive approach to planning and guiding project processes. An agile project is completed in small sections. These sections are called iterations.

Connecting the two terms, Scrum is an agile way to manage a project usually software management. Whereas, agile software management along with Scrum is realized as a framework for managing a process rather than just a methodology.

The goal of Scrum management is to deliver working products with more business value and with incremental practices. The project that is done in small sections of iterations are called sprints. At the end of each sprint the team produces a potentially deliverable product increment.

By working in small sprints, this cycle of iterations can be repeated until enough work items are completed. The work to be done is prioritized and broken into doable chunks. Scrum management is about collaborating and communicating both with the people who are doing the work and the people who need the work done. The perfect instance for this is a manager (the one who gets the work done) and his employees (the people who do the work). The idea is all about responding to the feedback of the customers and providing them real time services by fulfilling the gap between the type of demand and the type of supply.

Sprint, is the crucial activity of the whole project and a fixed iteration lasts between 1-4 weeks. The activities lined for the same are:

  1. The aftermath of this process is a complete list of functionality that needs to be added in the product, the list of tasks the team needs to complete during the sprint and have Burn down Charts to highlight the amount of work remaining in a sprint and provide an effective way to complete or schedule the same.

The major roles in the whole of the process involves three imperative positions viz.,

  • Product Owner– the one who ensures that the product backlog remains prioritized.
  • Scrum Master– A Scrum Master differs from a traditional project manager in many key ways, including that the Scrum Master does not provide day-to-day direction to the team and does not assign tasks to individuals. A key part of this role is to remove impediments or issues that might slow the team down or stop activity that moves the project forward.
  • The Team– the team consists of cross-functional group of 5-9 members who are responsible for developing the product. All the members are collectively responsible for getting the work done.

Therefore, Scrum Management is the new way of managing by self-organizing where in there is no traditional leader and hence the team is having the responsibility with equally defined authority and accountability.
