The Most Beautiful Thing About Scrum

There’s many things to love about Scrum, such as it’s focus on building what’s needed not what’s requested, it’s transparency by design and the welcoming of change from start to finish.

But today I realised the most beautiful part of Scrum — the fact that you are always at the beginning.

The beginning of the sprint, the beginning of planning, the beginning of the daily scrum, the beginning of the review and the retrospective which leads back to the beginning of the sprint where new things can happen again. On and on at the beginning.

Some people like the end because it has finality about it, but the beginning has always been a better place for me. The beginning is the place where you can see anything is possible.
