Who Should Use Scrum?

Scrum is an agile methodology that is commonly used by software development teams to ensure they are building and releasing products efficiently. But ANY team can use scrum to improve work output.

“At OpenView, we’ve found that Scrum can double the production of anything – it doesn’t matter whether it’s sales, marketing, software, finance – it works everywhere,” says Dr. Jeff Sutherland, CEO of Scrum Inc.

In this short video, Dr. Sutherland explains how it is becoming increasingly common for Scrum to first take root in a company’s engineering department and then expand out into other departments throughout the company, and that he is now also working with many management teams, as well.
