The heart of Scrum are iterations (called Sprints) with a length of up to 4 weeks.
All Sprints use the same Scrum framework, and all Sprints end with an Product Increment. The Product Increment is the sum of all Product Backlog items completed during a Sprint and all previous Sprints.
One Sprint starts immediately after the prior Sprint ends.
Within each iteration, Scrum employs self-organizing, cross-functional Scrum Roless to optimize flexibility and productivity.

Hints and Tips
Scrum is a framework which orchestrates roles, events, artifacts, and rules for effective team work. Scrum is innovative in its lean approach of combining few distinct elements into a stringent framework that delivers. It especially appeals to the work values and culture of a modern generation.
As a framework it provides clear rules and structures, yet it is open to individual strategies. It leaves it to the teams to define specifics like techniques, tools, or timings.
While Scrum is often used in IT projects, it is a team work model. It is used successfully in all kinds of environments like engineering, change management, or service delivery. It can be applied in projects as well as in all teams that need to deliver. The possibilities are endless. Scrum addresses the collaboration of people to become high performance teams. It works well in all teams that commit to the values of Scrum.
