Scrum | Definition of Scrum by Scrum Dictionary



Definition of Scrum

An agile framework, model, or philosophy for Product Development, not Project Management. There have been, are, and will be, many variants of Scrum; it is more of a concept than a prescription.


The purpose of a Scrum Team is to produce Results that satisfy Stakeholders’ desires, needs, and wants. These Results are built incrementally, with each piece being pulled from the Team by its Agreement on what Done means, rather than being pushed out by the Process. This is a Lean concept that is incorporated into Scrum by design.
Because of this emphasis on Doneness, Scrum generally considers quality to be more important than quantity.
