Scrum is rapidly gaining popularity within the world of business and is becoming the standard method of project management in many industries around the world. While Scrum methodologies have long been a tool in the software development world, many other industries are now catching on and discovering the outstanding benefits.
Why is Scrum so great? The methodology offers something of a paradigm shift in the project management process. Work is broken down into short, focused segments called “sprints”, and through this, teams are able to consistently touch base and reevaluate progress and goals. Product owners or teams can make rapid changes – either to minor details or the entire project scope – without negatively affecting overall progress or delaying deadlines.
As any experienced project manager knows, change is virtually inevitable in a creative environment. In traditional settings, even a minor change can seriously derail or delay a project, as traditional management tools frequently fail when it comes to handling change effectively. Scrum gives teams a reliable, proven solution for rolling with an ever-changing environment. With Scrum, teams are given the keys to succeed regardless of changes in client requirements, team changes, or even budget cuts.
