Scrum is often misunderstood as a set of rigid practices. However, at its core, it’s about empiricism and understanding complexity. This fundamental approach helps us adapt to varying circumstances and achieve better outcomes. It’s not about following a prescriptive set of steps; it’s about understanding the underlying principles that make Scrum work.

Empiricism is the practice of making decisions based on what is observed rather than what is assumed. In the world of Scrum, this means basing decisions on real-world data and experiences, not just theories or expectations. Complexity, on the other hand, deals with the unpredictable nature of software development. It acknowledges that not all problems can be solved with a one-size-fits-all solution and that outcomes often depend on a variety of factors.

A common misunderstanding in Scrum is the overemphasis on metrics like story points or velocity. These are not the goal but merely tools to help understand progress. The real aim is to foster an environment where teams can effectively respond to changing requirements and complex challenges.
