Scrum[1] is described as a ‘framework within which you can employ various processes and techniques’, rather than a process, or a technique, for building products[2].

Primarily used as a project management and product development framework[3], Scrum describes a framework for the incremental delivery of complex products. The Scrum framework is primarily team based, and defines associated roles, events, artefacts and rules. The origins of Scrum trace back to the mid-80s, but it was not a unified framework until 1995[4], when Jeff Sutherland and Ken Schwaber brought together the related experiences and research on incremental product development and project management.
