Digitization is much more than a passing fancy. In most companies, it is a well-established driver of many ongoing projects. The ever-growing importance of digitization demands new project management approaches and instruments. Since digitization projects often include large innovative components and are tightly interwoven with IT, they are often difficult to manage using classical methods. In this setting, agile approaches that can meet the specific characteristics of the new challenges are a much better match.
Scrum offers a consistent and unified framework for tackling innovative projects focusing on development topics. Scrum terms such as “product backlog”, “timeboxing” and “definition of done” have found firm footing well beyond IT and innovation in project management lingo, and the concepts they are based on are gaining more and more importance in day-to-day work.
