Scrum Overview Infographic

It is challenging to find a good, high-level summary of Scrum that you can share with your team.  One that visually describes the core concepts of the methodology in a way that anybody can understand. After having produced the new Scrum in 10 Minutes video, we decided to take a stab at this using the visuals from the video. What do you think?

Hamid, thanks for posting this summary of Scrum. I am afraid however that I agree with Charles Bradley in how the 10 minutes really glazes over the parts that make teams hyper productive. Retrospectives, agile planning, story prioritization, and most importantly sprint review/demos.

It appears that your perspective of SCRUM is a lot close to “traditional” project management than SCRUM is ever intended to be. I can tell that yout experience with scrum has been with larger organizations that have had to adapt traditional project managers into SM and PO, etc.
