Characteristics of Scrum

The following are some of the attributes of scrum

  • Self-organizing teams
  • A series of 1-4 week sprints are used to build the product.
  • No specific engineering procedures are necessary.
  • Creates an agile environment for accomplishing assignments via generative principle


A Scrum project advances via several sprints. The typical time frame is two to four weeks, or at most one month. During the sprint, the product is developed, coded, and tested. Scrum teams do a little of everything constantly rather than doing them all at once

Product Owner

He is a team client and drives the product from a business perspective

Responsibilities: Define the features of the product, decide when it will be released, and what will be included in it. Also, decide on the product’s release date and its content. He can accept or reject work results and reprioritizes things to meet requirements.


Scrum Master

He serves as the team’s facilitator and assists them in using the agile technique.

Responsibilities: He is in charge of carrying out the scrum values and practices as the project’s management representative, Also removes obstacles and makes sure the team is effective and completely operational.


The Team

  • Usually 5 to 9 persons
  • It should be cross-functional and self-organizing
  • Programmers, testers, and other professionals should be included.
  • Membership should only vary between sprints.

Sprint Planning

  • Select the sprint goal
  • Determine how to achieve the goal

  • Create the sprint backlog from the backlog items
  • Estimate the sprint backlog in hours.

Daily Scrum

Scrum is an informal team meeting where updates are shared.

Sprint Review

Showcases the team’s work from the sprint in the form of a demonstration of new features on the underlying architecture

Sprint Retrospective

After the sprint review, the team gathers to discuss what went wrong, and what they want to start, stop, and continue doing. It also looks at what is and is not working

Sprint Backlog

In order to manage the sprint backlog these things are taken care of- Task priorities are revised. Work is never assigned, and the amount of work left to do is updated every day. Any team member may modify the sprint backlog by adding or removing items.
