Benefits of Scrum

Increase ROI for Projects with Scrum
One of the key characteristics of any project is the uncertainty of results or outcomes. It is impossible to guarantee project success at completion, irrespective of the size or complexity of a project. Considering this uncertainty of achieving success, it is therefore important to start delivering results as early in the project as possible.

Advantage over Traditional Project Management
Traditional project management emphasizes on conducting detailed upfront planning for the project with emphasis on fixing the scope, cost and schedule - and managing those parameters. Whereas, Scrum encourages data-based, iterative decision making in which the primary focus is on delivering products that satisfy customer requirements.

Improved Project Delivery
A project is a collaborative enterprise to either create new products or services or to deliver results as defined in the Project Vision Statement. Usually, the results generated by projects are expected to create some form of business or service value.
