SBOK™ Guide overview:
The SBOK® Guide draws from the combined knowledge and insight gained from thousands of projects across a variety of organizations and industries. Eighteen subject matter experts and twenty-eight reviewers contributed to the creation of the SBOK® Guide. It is available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Italian, French, and Arabic.
Scrum, as defined in the SBOK™ Guide, is a framework which is applicable to portfolios, programs, or projects of any size or complexity; and may be applied effectively in any industry to create a product, service, or other result.
The first chapter describes the purpose and framework of the SBOK® Guide, and provides an introduction to the important concepts of Scrum. It contains a summary of Scrum principles, Scrum aspects and Scrum processes. Chapter 2 expands on the six Scrum principles which are the foundation on which the Scrum framework is based: Empirical Process Control, Self-organization, Collaboration, Value-based Prioritization, Time-boxing, and Iterative Development. Chapters 3 through 7 elaborate on the five Scrum aspects that must be addressed throughout any project: Organization, Business Justification, Quality, Change, and Risk. Chapters 8 through 12 cover the 19 Scrum processes involved in carrying out a Scrum project. These processes are part of the five Scrum phases: Initiate; Plan and Estimate; Implement; Review and Retrospect; and Release. These phases describe in detail the associated inputs, tools, and outputs of each process.
The third edition of the SBOK® Guide adds to the collective knowledge of the Scrum framework with content related to Scaling Scrum for Large Projects, and Scaling Scrum for the Enterprise, covered in Chapters 13 and 14 respectively.
