Scrum is a framework in which people can deal with complex problems while delivering valuable products. Scrum is straightforward to understand but very difficult to master. Scrum has been used for managing work on complex products since the early 1990s. Scrum is not a method neither a technique; it is a framework.
The Scrum Master is said to be a servant leader for the Scrum Team. Also mentioned in the Scrum Guide, Scrum Master helps everybody to understand Scrum values, rules, and theory. Scrum has been used in almost everything we use in our daily life to develop software, hardware but also in marketing or other areas.
