The benefits of SCRUM are multiple
AGILE management is taking the corporate bastions and dethroning the kings of useless planning. SCRUM, one of the greatest secrets of management (says FORBES) and a method invented 20 years ago.
Like all silent revolutions, SCRUM is taking a while to arrive, but is inexorably approaching. It’s emerging from technical departments and being applied to all areas of business management.

I also speak on behalf of myself. I was among those who hyperplanned any activity with time, resources and deadlines, put it into a project management tool and made PERT and GANTT diagrams to have everything controlled to the millimeter.

SCRUM breaks all these paradigms that we invented in the early 20th century
