Scrum – It is what it is.

And I don’t intend to say that with a negative perspective.

Quite often people wonder why Scrum – a framework for complex product development – has the rules as described in the Scrum Guide. The authors of Scrum (Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland) say that the framework contains the roles, events, artifacts, and the rules that bind them together necessary to operate. Adding, changing or removing something will not make it Scrum anymore and a Scrum team will not work optimally.

Quote by Ken Schwaber:

“Scrum is a general-purpose framework applicable in complex situations, where more is unknown about the parameters than is known. The rules of empiricism and self-organizing make it work within short iterations that control the risk and increase chances of finding answers and creating value. The few roles, artifacts and events are fixed so the Scrum team can focus on unraveling complexity.”
