Scrum — a lightweight product delivery framework that has conquered and revolutionised our work processes since its inception in 1995. It has been governed by a thin document, the Scrum Guide, last updated in 2017, that describes how Scrum works. Just like various creative processes made by humans, such as writing poetry or composing music, the rules of Scrum are simple but it is difficult to master. Teams that use the framework to deliver customer value, usually employ a full time Scrum Master who helps facilitate Scrum events, coaches the team to improve and helps them work towards becoming a self-organising team.
Following the rapid adoption of Agile in IT, non-tech companies are now working towards business agility by harnessing the power of human-to-human interactions and shortening delivery cycles.
Start with what you do now — this is what the Kanban method advises. It was first used by Toyota in Japan and has become a solution to improve delivery, decrease waste and uncover bottlenecks.
