What is the Scrum Framework? How does it work? What is its purpose? And how do all these roles, events and artifacts work together?This episode of our podcast is for everyone who wants to learn what Scrum is, or wants to refresh their understanding.
Recently, we noticed that we don't have an episode dedicated to explaining the Scrum Framework itself. We often touch on elements or bust 'myths' about it, but we never talk about the whole. In part, this is because there is an excellent official Scrum Guide at scrumguides.org. But there is often value in hearing it explained in other words and with different metaphors. Plus, we often do this as part of our work as stewards and Professional Scrum Trainers for Scrum.org.
We created this content as part of our upcoming book, the Zombie Scrum Survival Guide. In it, we use the tongue-in-cheek metaphor of Zombie Scrum to understand Scrum from the perspective of what it absolutely shouldn't be (but often is): Zombie Scrum. It contains over 40 helpful experiments to make Scrum work and explains both Scrum, and why it sometimes turns into Zombie Scrum.
