Last time we discussed Scrum Definition today we will be focusing on the Scrum theory

Scrum work on empiricism and lean thinking, Now what is empiricism and lean thinking, empiricism means knowledge that comes from experience and applying over it. Lean thinking means trying to reduce waste and focus on the important task

Scrum is an iterative, incremental approach to optimize predictability and to control risk toward the sprint goal. A scrum is a group of people who collectively have all the skills and expertise to do the work and share or acquire such skills as needed.

Scrum consists of four formal events for inspection and adaptation within a containing event, the Sprint. These events work because they implement the empirical Scrum pillars of transparency, inspection, and adaptation.

Let us understand this theory of Scrum :)


The process and work must be visible to those performing the work as well as those receiving the work. With Scrum, important decisions are based on the perceived state of its three formal artifacts. Lower transparency can lead to decisions that diminish the value and increase risk.


The Scrum artifacts and the progress toward agreed goals must be inspected frequently and diligently to detect potentially undesirable variances or problems. To help with inspection, Scrum provides cadence in the form of its five events. An inspection enables adaptation.


If any aspects of a process deviate outside acceptable limits or if the resulting product is unacceptable, the process being applied or the materials being produced must be adjusted. The adjustment must be made as soon as possible to minimize further deviation.

Now the question is how to make this Transparent, Inspection and Adaptation process smooth to team and Stakeholders that we will learn in Next Comming article
