What is Scrum? Is it a process? A methodology? Yes. Scrum is both of these and more. Scrum is a simple set of rules for
getting things done as a team. And since Scrum involves teams it includes sociology.
Scrum is a culture and embracing and nuturing a culture is difficult. It would be nice if an amazing culture could just

is not open to a new way of thinking then Scrum stands no chance.
The difficulties of Scrum are changing culture and not about adopting a process. Scrum as a tool is actually incredibly
EASY TO UNDERSTAND. But using the tool properly involves embracing a culture. This is why Scrum is so HARD.

tools were lacking. And thus the Portal team began building their own Scrum tool. And thus Rocket Scrum was born.
