Scrum Artifacts

Scrum’s artifacts represent work or value to provide transparency and opportunities for inspection and adaptation. Artifacts defined by Scrum are specifically designed to maximize transparency of key information so that everybody has the same understanding of the artifact.

Scrum Events

The Sprint is a container for all other events. Each event in Scrum is a formal opportunity to inspect and adapt Scrum artifacts. These events are specifically designed to enable the transparency required. Failure to operate any events as prescribed results in lost opportunities to inspect and adapt.

Scrum Roles

Scrum Teams are self-managed and cross-functional, meaning they internally decide who does what, when, and how. They have all competencies needed to accomplish the work without depending on others not part of the team and choose how best to completed their work, rather than being directed by others outside the team and designed to optimize flexibility, creativity, and productivity.

Scrum Framework
