         Scrum is an Iterative development methodology used to manage Software projects. In Scrum based projects, there is not a specific project manager directing project team tasks, the team is self-directed with co-located team members relying on communication over documentation for effective project delivery.

   There will be a Scrum Team, comprised of BAs, Developers, and Testers. Each Team size will on average be 7-8. Product Owner will decide what needs to be in the product and will be responsible for how the product has to be. He will regularly interact with Customers and BAs. The Scrum Master will monitor the performance of the team within the Sprint.

   Product burn down shows how much work was left to do at the beginning of each Sprint. Sprint is the Period that Team decides to deliver their objectives. Normally a Sprint period will be for 2 weeks to 4 weeks.

   There are some Meetings will be held on as Sprint Planning Meeting, Daily Scrum Meeting, Sprint Review Meeting and Sprint Retrospective Meeting.

The scrum master is the role responsible for gluing everything together and ensuring that scrum is being done well. In practical terms, that means they help the product owner define value, the development team deliver the value, and the scrum team to get to get better.

1. Product owner:Holds the vision for the product

Scrum is an agile process framework for managing complex knowledge work, with an initial emphasis on software development, although it has been used in other fields and is slowly starting to be explored for other complex work, research and advanced technologies.

In Scrum, there are three roles: Product Owner, Development Team, and Scrum Master. Together these are known as the Scrum Team

Scrum Master: Roles and Responsibilities
The Scrum Master helps the product group learn and apply Scrum to achieve business value. The Scrum Master does whatever is in their power to help the Team, Product Owner and organization be successful. The Scrum Master is not the manager of the Team members, nor are they a project manager, team lead, or team representative. Instead, the Scrum Master serves the Team; he or she helps to remove impediments, protects the Team from outside interference, and helps the Team to adopt Agile development practices. He or she educates, coaches and guides the Product Owner, Team and the rest of the organization in the skillful use of Scrum.
Scrum Master ensures everyone follows the practices prescribed by Scrum.

A Scrum Master is a facilitator and Servant Leader who encourages and demands self-organization from the development team.
A Scrum Master enables close cooperation across all roles and functions, addresses resource issue and disobedience of scrum practices.
A Scrum Master protects the team from external and internal distractions.
A Scrum Master removes impediments so the team can focus on the work at hand and follow scrum practices.
A Scrum Master is not typically a manager or lead, but he is an influential leader and coach who does not do direct command and control.

Scrum Product Owner: Roles and Responsibilities
The Product Owner is responsible for maximizing return on investment (ROI) by identifying product features, translating these into a prioritized list, deciding which should be at the top of the list for the next Sprint, and continually re-prioritizing and refining the list. The Product Owner has profit and loss responsibility for the product, assuming it is a commercial product. Product Owner in Agile is like a spokesperson for customer and needs to represent them,

A Product Owner owns the Product backlog and writes user stories and acceptance criteria.
A Product Owner is responsible for prioritizing the Product Backlog is prioritized and decides the release date and the content.
A Product Owner accepts or rejects product backlog item.
A Product Owner has the power to cancel the Sprint, if he thinks the Sprint goal is redundant.
A Product Owner is the one who is responsible for the Return on Investment (ROI) of the product.


Development team: Roles and Responsibilities
A Development Team is a collection of individuals working together to develop and deliver the requested and committed product increments. It comprises of cross-functional members who are capable of achieving the sprint goals. This could include software engineers, architects, programmers, analysts, system admins, QA experts, testers, UI designers, etc.

The Development Team builds the product that the Product Owner indicates: the application or website, for example. The Team in Scrum is “cross-functional”
The Development Team includes all the expertise necessary to deliver the potentially shippable product each Sprint
The Development Team is self-organizing, with a very high degree of autonomy and accountability.
The Development Team decides how many items to build in a Sprint, and how best to accomplish that goal.
The Development Team is a cross functional, small and self-organizing team which owns the collective responsibility of developing, testing and releasing the Product increment.
The Development Team may not appoint any team lead since decisions are taken collectively by the team.

What is Scrum?
Scrum methodology is an iterative process of the agile approach that focuses on delivering value in the shortest amount of time. When using the scrum approach, the project is broken down into smaller builds, called sprints, with specific time frames.
Sprints generally last one to two weeks and involve daily meetings to discuss progress and development. Once a sprint is complete, the team gets together again to discuss how to approach the next sprint.

The roles, responsibilities, and meetings are fixed in a Scrum. In each sprint, there is sprint planning, daily stand-up, sprint demo and sprint retrospective. There are task boards and burn down charts to follow up on the progress of the sprint as well as to receive incremental feedback.

Roles in a scrum:
1.   Product Owner
2.   Scrum Master
3.   Scrum Team

Steps in the Scrum flow:
1.   Product backlog
2.   Sprint planning
3.   Backlog refinement
4.   Daily Scrum
5.   Sprint review meeting
6.   Sprint retrospective meeting

Scrum: Scrum is a subset of Agile. It is a lightweight process framework for agile development and the most widely-used one.

A “process framework” is a particular set of practices that must be followed in order for a process to be consistent with the framework. For example, the Scrum process framework requires the use of development cycles called Sprints, the XP framework requires pair programming.
“Lightweight” means that the overhead of the process is kept as small as possible, to maximize the amount of productive time available for getting useful work done.
A Scrum process is distinguished from other agile processes by specific concepts and practices, divided into the three categories of Roles, Artifacts, and Time Boxes. These and other terms used in Scrum are defined below. Scrum is most often used to manage complex software and product development, using iterative and incremental practices. Scrum significantly increases productivity and reduces time to benefits relative to classic “waterfall” processes. Scrum processes enable organizations to adjust smoothly to rapidly-changing requirements and produce a product that meets evolving business goals. An agile Scrum process benefits the organization by helping it to
1. Increase the quality of the deliverable
2. Cope better with change
3. Provide better estimates while spending less time creating them
4. Be more in control of the project schedule and state
