Lots of trainers and agile coaches try to touch advanced elements of Scrum, Agile, motivation, models, frameworks etc. We are building new theories or looking for existing ones to back up our understanding of the subject. We are trying to bend and break rules to show that we are the best. But not everyone is on the “RI” level. And even if you are, you can still benefit from a well-organized basics.

Today I’m presenting a way to easily imagine how Scrum elemenst interlock, how they react with each other, what, who and when is needed. Inspired by my friend, Paweł Feliński – [I will link to his blog if he writes something :D ], a Periodic table of Scrum:

The main table is a chart where you can quickly spot where an element belongs. You can print it in high resolution – the PDF is attached below.

Then apart from the main table, all elements are explained like this:

Element chart – Increment

It will be changing if there are changes to the Scrum Guide.
