Scrum methodology is basically the framework for managing process. In the agile Scrum world, instead of providing complete, detailed descriptions of how everything is to be done on a project, much of it is left up to the Scrum software development team. This is because the team will know best how to solve the problem they are presented.

Scrum relies on a self-organizing, cross-functional team. The scrum team is self-organizing in that there is no overall team leader who decides which person will do which task or how a problem will be solved. Those are issues that are decided by the team as a whole.And in Scrum, a team is cross functional, meaning everyone is needed to take a feature from idea to implementation.

The Scrum model suggests that projects progress via a series of sprints. In keeping with an agile methodology, sprints are time boxed to no more than a month long, most commonly two weeks.Another activity in Scrum project management is the sprint retrospective at the end of each sprint. The whole team participates in this meeting, including the Scrum Master and PO. The meeting is an opportunity to reflect on the sprint that has ended, and identify opportunities to improve.
