Scrum is an agile method for managing projects and for establishing self-organization in a company.

Scrum is characterized by close communication among all participants, by high adaptability to changes and by flat hierarchies. With Scrum it is possible to realize projects even with high uncertainty and complexity, it is not necessary to design a detailed project plan before the project starts. Scrum works with teams that are put together interdisciplinary. Goal and direction are given, but the teams have the freedom to make their own way there. The Scrum method has three different roles: the Product Owner, the Scrum Master, and the Development Team.
