Scrum is a framework for project management that emphasizes flexibility, collaboration, and iterative progress toward a goal. It was originally developed for software development but is now used in a variety of industries for project management.

The Scrum framework consists of three roles: the Product Owner, the Scrum Master, and the Development Team. The Product Owner is responsible for defining the project goals and priorities, and for communicating those goals to the Development Team. The Scrum Master is responsible for ensuring that the team follows the Scrum framework and for removing any obstacles that may prevent the team from completing its work. The Development Team is responsible for delivering the product incrementally, in short cycles called sprints.

The Scrum framework also includes a set of ceremonies or events that facilitate communication and collaboration among the team members. These ceremonies include Sprint Planning, Daily Scrum, Sprint Review, and Sprint Retrospective.

One of the key principles of Scrum is that the team should work in short, iterative cycles, with a focus on delivering a working product increment at the end of each cycle. This allows the team to adjust and adapt to changing requirements or priorities, and to continuously improve the product over time.
