History and evolution of Scrum
Enterprises, both IT and Non-IT, have gone through a transformation in the past around the ways of working. Which began as a way of interaction in a collaborative environment and later turned into an industry-wide circumstance. The historical backdrop of Scrum has a great deal to unfurl about the beginning, advancement, and reformative improvement of the structure. Today, Scrum is a commonly recognized framework to a great extent in the developed corporate world as well as in day to day life.

A short synopsis of the history of Scrum
If you look back at the history of the scrum you will see Jeff Sutherland and John Scumniotales, and Jeff McKenna was the first to implement the scrum process in 1993. At Easel cooperation in 1993, Jeff and his team thought that there is a need to develop a new process for software development, and this way they created the Scrum process.

In 1995, Jeff Sutherland and Ken Schwaber officially presented the scrum development process on papers in OOPSLA (Object-oriented programming, system, language, and Application) Conference 1995, Austin ( Texas).In Harvard Business Review (HRB) article titled “The new product development game” by Hirotaka Takeuchi & Ikujiro Nonaka is the first known encrypted sign of the scrum process. Jeff and his team created the scrum process with the help of that article only. They combine the HRB article of 1986 with various concepts like empirical process control, iterative development, object-oriented development, and the development of dynamic and complex systems. The scrum framework is a very flexible way of working that should be involved in software development. Scrum is divided into various time-box which are known as sprints. Generally, each sprint is a time-box of 4 weeks or leass and after that, the results are taken into consideration by the scrum team, the outcomes are adapted if necessary, changes are made with the collaborative opinion.

In 2001, Schwaber, Sutherland, and their 15 associates launched an Agile manifesto. This manifesto later turned into a mentor or into a guide for the software engineers to develop the highest quality software products. Since that time so many implementations are being made by Schwaber and his team to adapt the very efficient methodology and scrum teams achieving their goals.

In 2002, An organization was formed which is known as Scrum Alliance. Certified Scrum Master (CSM) certificate is given by this organization after passing their test.
