Scrum is a process of s/w development used with agile software development. Taks are collected in product backlog, out of these sprint backlog is prepared, then sprint executed iterated same again.

A sprint is a time-boxed period of a list of task.

Pig: ones committed to the project in the Scrum process. who are:
Product Owner :who represents the stakeholders
