Transparency is central to Scrum. Scrum is an empirical framework, which means that we work as scientists. We make something, observe and adjust. At Scrum we don't make assumptions, we make decisions based on what we see and know. We therefore present a working product as soon as possible to collect feedback.
Scrum is a good alternative to so-called 'waterfalls'. In this traditional way of project management, all steps are taken successively and the various disciplines work one after the other. Because this development process takes a very long time, it often happens that the world and wishes have completely changed when the product is launched. By working in small steps and with a testable (sub) product, you as a Scrum team always surface to collect feedback and to check whether you are still on track and setting the right priorities. In contrast to the waterfall method, the client is closely involved in the creative process in a Scrum process.
