According to recent studies, 76% of all software companies use Scrum or its variants. The main reason behind this wide adoption across multiple industries is because organizations are repeatedly delighted their customers by giving them precisely what they want in a fast and predictable pace. This allows organizations to quickly test multiple options, fail fast, and double-down on the option that succeeds, which eventually leads to improved return on investment. Furthermore, organizations are able to reduce costs by eliminating waste and preventing dysfunction.

It is important to note that Scrum is not a silver bullet, however, Scrum can enable you and your organization to please your customers by improving teams’ delivery speed, confidence, reduce cost and improve return on investment. Scrum framework is simple, however, it would be a misconception to assume that Scrum is easy to apply.

Scrum doesn’t prescribe answer your process questions, instead, it empowers teams to ask and answer their own questions, the right questions. Scrum doesn’t provide you with a definitive solution to all of your organizational challenges, instead, it makes the dysfunction and wastes visible so that as leaders of your organizations, you can take initiative to fix them.
