Hello and welcome to our module on SCRUM Principles in the SBOK guide.
So far in our Journey to SCRUM we´ve learned how to use the SCRUM Body of Knowledge, in many of the previous videos we’ve only mentioned the SCRUM principles, now, in this module We will look at this principles more closely, so ¿Why are these principles so important?, because the SCRUM principles are the core guideline for applying the SCRUM Framework and should always be used in all SCRUM projects, so let’s take a look at this principles:
The 6 SCRUM principles are:

  1. Empirical Process Control
  2. Self-organization
  3. Collaboration
  4. Valued-based prioritization
  5. Time-Boxing and,
  6. Iterative Development.

You can see how they’re arranged in this diagram:

Note that, SCRUM principles can be apply to any type of project in any organization and should always be followed in order to ensure effective implementation of the SCRUM Framework. SCRUM principles are non-negociable and sould be applied as specified in the SBOK guide, keeping the principles intact and using them properly instils confidence in the SCRUM Framework with regard to attaining the objectives of the project.

On the other hand, the Scrum Aspects and Processes can be modified to meet the requirements of the proyect or the organization, following is a detail look at each principle beginning with

(1) Empirical Process Control, this principle emphasizes the core philosofy of scrum base on the three main ideas of transparency, inspection and adaptation, the second principle is

(2) Self-organization and focuses on today’s workers who deliver significantly greater value when encouraged to self-organize rather than working under commanding control style of traditional project management, the third principle

(3) Collaboration focuses on the three core dimensions related to collaborative work that is awareness, articulation and appropriation it also advocates project management as a shared value-creation process with teams working and interacting together to deliver the greatest value, the fourth principle is

(4) Value-based prioritization this principle highlights the focus of scrum to deliver maximum business value beginning early in the project and continuing throughout, the fifth principle is

(5) Time-boxing this principle emphasizes time as a limiting constraint in scrum, time-boxing is used to help effectively manage project planning and execution time boxed elements in scrum includes Sprint’s daily stand-up meetings, sprint planning meetings and sprint review meetings and finally we have

(6) Iterative development as the sixth principle, this principle defines iterative development and emphasizes how to better manage changes and build projects that satisfy customer needs, it also delineates the product owners and organizations responsibilities related to iterative development.

That covers the 6 SCRUM principles these will continue to be developed throughout our other course modules, thank you for learning with us.
