Scrum is a popular framework for agile product development that is based on a set of artifacts. These artifacts are used to help teams plan, execute, review, and improve their work. The three main artifacts in Scrum are the Product Backlog, the Sprint Backlog, and the Increment.
The Product Backlog is a prioritized list of features and functionalities that the team is working on. It is a living document that is continuously updated and refined throughout the project. The Product Owner is responsible for the Product Backlog, and they work closely with the Development Team to ensure that it is up-to-date and that the team is working on the most important features. The Product Backlog is used to guide the work of the Development Team and to ensure that the product being developed meets the needs of the users and the goals of the organization.
The Sprint Backlog is a list of items from the Product Backlog that the Development Team has committed to delivering during the upcoming sprint. It is a plan for the work that will be done during the sprint and is used to guide the work of the Development Team. The Sprint Backlog is updated daily during the Daily Scrum and is used to track the progress of the sprint.
The Increment is the sum of all the product backlog items that have been completed during the sprint and the value of the increments of all previous sprints. It is the working product that is delivered at the end of each sprint, and it represents the current state of the product. The Increment is a representation of the product’s current state, and it is used to demonstrate progress to stakeholders and to gather feedback. It is also used to evaluate the quality of the product and to identify any issues that need to be addressed.
