In one of our candidate searches, we were looking for a Scrum master which left me wondering What isScrum?If you are familiar with rugby, which I admit I really am NOT, Im not talkingabout scrum in the rugby sense. What is Scrum where rugby isconcerned? Its the part of the game where the players all join up information with their arms interlocked and heads down, and push againstthe opposing side.Keeping the rugby version of Scrum in mind, the Scrum Im talking aboutreally isnt that different. Scrum is a method of project management, usedparticularly in software development, where teams work together tocomplete tasks within 30-days. Breaking apart complex tasks intosmaller, bite-sized tasks, a Scrum master manages over adevelopment team to make sure all runs smoothly in accomplishingthe mini-goal in 30-days or less.According to Scrum.org, Scrums core is governed by 3 primary roles:Product Owners determine what needs to be built in the next 30 days or less;Development Teams build what is needed in 30 days (or less), and the Product Owner determines what tobuild next;Scrum Masters ensure the process happens as smoothly as possible, and continually help improve theprocess, the team and the product being created.I especially appreciate how Scrum.org writes, Scrum supports our need to be human at work: to belong, tolearn, to do, to create and be creative, to grow, to improve, and to interact with other people.Keeping all this in mind, I ask you How could you break down your huge tasks into bite-sized, edible pieces? Youknow Those big projects that have been sitting on your to-do list for at least for at least the past year, howeveryouve been reluctant to start one because you dont know how youll ever finish it.Could youWrite a book, one bite-sized chapter or section at a time?Re-develop your website, one page worth of content at a time?Develop your sales team, starting with a sales manager who will help assemble your sales material?Remember, ALL things ARE possible. Sometimes we need to remember to look at the smaller pieces to make theend result feel achievable.*****
