What are the Scrum rituals and artifacts?

Scrum is an agile framework used for planning, executing and controlling projects. It is based on the collaboration of self-organizing and cross-functional teams to achieve fast and flexible results. Scrum defines rituals and artifacts to ensure that all stakeholders are on the same page at every step of the process. Here are the Scrum rituals and artifacts in detail:

Scrum Rituals:

  1. Sprint Planning: a meeting at the beginning of each Sprint to plan the goal of the Sprint and the work that will be done during the Sprint.
  2. Daily Scrum: A daily 15-minute meeting where the team discusses work progress, challenges, and plans for the day.
  3. Sprint Review: A meeting at the end of the Sprint where the team demonstrates the work completed during the Sprint and receives feedback from stakeholders.
  4. Sprint Retrospective: A meeting at the end of the Sprint where the team reflects on what went well and poorly during the Sprint and how they can improve.

Scrum artifacts:

  1. Product Backlog: An ordered list of requirements for the product that are prioritized and created and managed by the product owner.
  2. Sprint Backlog: A list of tasks that the team will complete during the Sprint, based on the requirements from the Product Backlog.
  3. Increment: The result of a Sprint that represents a potentially deliverable increment of the product.

Scrum rituals and artifacts are designed to promote a high level of transparency, collaboration, and focus on the team’s work. By regularly planning, executing, and reviewing work steps and progress, teams can remain flexible to respond to changing stakeholder requirements and needs.
