Scrum

Scrum | Agile | Sprint
Agile approaches such as Scrum are very popular in software development because they enable rapid and continuous progress to be made in the development of projects. Scrum is an agile framework based on the use of short iterations or “sprints” in which specific goals must be achieved. It is a structured approach aimed at responding quickly to changes in the project and improving communication between the various stakeholders.

Scrum is used in many different industries and fields, especially in the development of software, but also in the planning and execution of projects in marketing, architecture and other areas. It is also suitable for smaller teams as it promotes collaboration and effective use of resources.

Some typical use cases for Scrum include developing new software products or features, improving existing products, and executing projects with unclear requirements or a high level of complexity. Scrum can also help improve collaboration between different teams and departments and simplify communication and coordination.

In the context of Scrum, there are also a number of related technologies and tools that are helpful in implementing the framework. These include, for example, task management and tracking tools, such as JIRA or Trello, which make it possible to monitor progress in the project and plan the next steps. There are also special Scrum boards that visually represent the different phases and tasks in the project and facilitate collaboration.

The experts at BITS have used Scrum in a variety of projects. A selection of case studies and references can be found below.
