Core Scrum practices are:
- Backlog (Product, Release, Sprint Backlog - lists of all functionality in product, release and sprint respectively)
- Iterative development (The whole project gets divided into Sprints usually 4 weeks duration each)
- Scrum meetings (daily meetings where team members answers the following questions: What have you done since the last scrum meeting? What has impeded your work? What do you plan on doing between now and the next scrum meeting?)
- Burn Down Charts (charts that show Sprint, Release and Product progress)
- Sprint review meeting (provides an inspection of project progress at the end of the every Sprint)
