Before I dive into the details, I want to give you a high level overview of a typical scrum process. So that you will better understand the roles, the events and the artifacts that  I will be showing you in the following videos 

The process starts when the product owner creates the product backlog, that is a list of all the features and functions and requirements that might be needed in the final product of the project.

The scrum team get together in a sprint planning meeting and decide what items in the product backlog they can work on and complete during the next time period.

This list of Product Backlog Items is frozen in a Sprint Backlog

The development team immediately set to work completing the items in the sprint backlog in a set time frame called a sprint.

Every day during the sprint the development team and the scrum master meet in a short 15 minute stand up meeting, called the daily scrum, to discuss their individual progress, and plan for the work to be completed in the next 24 hours

Towards the end of the sprint, the development team demonstrate the output of the work they’ve done up to now.

And all the while the product owner supported by the scrum master reviews the latest product increment and the potential business value and refine the product backlog in preparation for the next iteration or sprint.

And the process begins again

So there you have it a typical scrum process that’s iterative, cyclical and empirical.
