Time-Boxing in Scrum

Scrum treats time as one of the most important constraints in managing a project. To address the constraint of time, Scrum introduces a concept called 'Time-boxing' which proposes fixing a certain amount of time for each process and activity in a Scrum project. This ensures that Scrum team members do not take up too much or too little work for a particular period of time and do not expend their time and energy on work for which they have little clarity.

Some of the benefits of Time-boxing are:

  • Efficient development process;
  • Less overheads; and
  • High velocity for teams.
