What is Scrum? A good, bad, and ugly answer. Edited

Max Rehkopf Atlassian Team Jan 15, 2019

In a world of dark-scrum, faux-scrum, and scrum-butt, the question still remains: What is scrum and how do you do it “right?” That’s the question we set out to answer.

I'm Max, I've been teaching companies large and small about agile and lean for the last 3 years. Since most scrum implementation differs from the official Scrum Guide, I started looking for Atlassian teams that emulate the scrum values and asked them to share their process. I recently released a series of videos teaching the Scrum basics, rooted in how we do scrum at Atlassian.

The good: Scrum is built on solid principles that help teams to do right by their customers and build a culture of continuous improvement

The bad: Scrum also has strict rules that many seem to follow blindly. These rules lead some teams to adopt a system that may not work best for their environment.

The ugly: Scrum has a lot of baggage and this legacy complicates things. 

Hopefully our video series shines a light for teams hoping to navigating the complex world of scrum. Let us know how we did:

So, what is scrum to you, the good, the bad and the ugly?
