What Does It Mean For Our Clients?
Scrum is a framework which can be applied in any industry, therefore it is globally recognized and widely used. Due to the fact that we made scrum a part of our everyday work, the customers have an insight into how we operate and what procedures we follow. Furthermore, for our clients who do not have a broad knowledge of software development, it is a step-by-step breakdown of tasks performed on every stage of the project.
Additionally, the time tracking option allows the investor to monitor the duration of each activity and analyze the development process and its costs. Thanks to this, it is possible to implement necessary changes and improvements in order to make it process more efficient and cost-effective.
The Scrum framework allows us to prioritize tasks smoothly and distribute the workforce between the tasks in an orderly manner. Also, the agile character of the scrum framework enables one to easily assign new tasks when something unexpected emerges. What is more, the tasks which need to be put aside will not get lost as they will be waiting for their turn in the sprint backlog.

Scrum is a lightweight framework designed to carry out complex projects. It was developed in such a way that it helps to control the risk and optimize predictability.
The scrum framework is made of particular elements, rules and procedures. Leaving out or omitting any of them will limit scrum benefits, suppress problems and may result in the whole process being useless.
The Scrum guide, which can be found on Scrum.org , allows to get to know the basic concept of the scrum framework and explains how it can be useful in enterprise operation.
A Scrum Team is a group of people working together towards the Product Goal. The team needs to consist of Scrum Master, Product Owner and Software Developers. The self-managing scrum team is like a well-oiled machine
In order to ensure proper information flow, it is believed that the Scrum team should not be bigger than 10 people. In case the team expands and gets too large, it is advised to establish a separate development team which will share the same Product Backlog, Product Goal and Product Owner.
The Scrum Team defines product development involving verification, testing maintenance and anything else that might pop up during the development process.
According to scrum framework, meetings need to be held everyday. Daily scrum meetings, called Daily for short, are no longer than 15 minutes and should always be held in the same place. It does not require the presence of the whole scrum team but the development team needs to be there.
The purpose of daily meetings is to get all the developers up to speed with the progress towards the sprint goal and to discuss the scrum team's effectiveness. Additionally, new tasks from the Sprint Backlog can be adapted to the current sprint. Daily meetings are a casual and easy way to keep the scrum team focused on the goal and detect any setbacks almost instantly.
Is Scrum Useful?
