Abstract

Pakistan's software industry is comparatively young as compared to the global software industry. This aspect makes this young industry flexible to adopt new project management and software development methodologies because the existing methodologies are not mature enough therefore any new change does not impose serious threats and / or risks to existing operational working style. Scrum is a project management approach and is most commonly adopted in the global industry today and Pakistan's software industry is also adopting Scrum for acquiring utmost benefit from this methodology. The primary rationale of this paper is to get an insight into Scrum adoption, implementation and acceptance in Pakistan's software industry. Another purpose is also to understand how much Scrum is feasible; particularly for Pakistan's software industry. Conclusions derived from this research effort would be helpful for overall Pakistan's software industry for making an accurate decision for Scrum adoption, implementation and acceptance.
