July 2011 : The creators of Scrum released a new version this month.
Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland published “The Scrum Guide” in many languages (http://www.scrum.org/scrumguides/).
To celebrate that, I wanted to summarize Scrum and fit most of it into 1 slide !
Since it is not quite easy, here is my first iteration on that :
- To keep it as simple as possible, I skipped on purpose some concepts.
- However, alsthough it is not part of Scrum as such, I have added in bracket “Continuous Build and Deploy”, as I find that a keystone to Agility,
- The “Definition of DONE” is applicable at many level and could also be representing “Behavior”, if you do “Behavior Development Driven” (BDD).x²
I think this timeline is a complement to the well known graphic of Scrum :

Well, obviously, Scrum is much more than that, and answers many other questions such as :
- how to decompose the Product Backlog into a Spring Backlog into User stories, tasks, with repectively Story points, …
- how to determine the amount of Story points, …
- Agile Estimating and Planning (Mike Cohn)
as well as some of his other books "Succeeding with Agile: Software Development Using Scrum".
