What are different scrum controls?

It happens in some of the cases that the whole scrum process comes on the verge of the collapsing! In such cases it is required that the management controls stay in order, undisturbed and firm all the times. 
There are many scrum controls; however the risk assessment continues to be the most valuable one with its impacts as well.

What are different Scrum Controls?

The below mentioned are the effective scrum controls:

1. Issues: 
Issues can be thought of as the obstacles that do not pose any major risk, defect or bug but cannot be considered to be a positive aspect for the software project.

2. Risk assessment: 
This is the most influential scrum control also as it influences the other scrum controls quite much. The success of the project depends largely up on this scrum control as well its impacts.

3. Packets: 
These are product elements pending for the modification in order to facilitate the implementation of the product backlog items in to the working software that is to be released at the end of the sprint.

4. Backlog: 
This backlog consists of all the details of the bugs, defects and the requests of the customers that could not be implemented in the current release and have to be incorporated in to the next release. In addition to all these, the backlogs also consist of the technology and functionality upgrades.

5. Solutions: 
These are the scrum controls occurring between the risks, problems and changes.

6. Release and Enhancement: 
After the risk assessment, this is the second most valuable scrum control for the entire development cycle. This scrum control at any point of time represents a viable release based up on the requirement variables.

How does these scrum controls help?

- Most of the above mentioned scrum controls are employed for the management of the product backlogs and the sprint backlogs. 
- These scrum controls are used for the following purposes:
  1. Managing issues
  2. Obtaining better solutions
- Even these controls are reviewed from time to time and modified or reconciled if and whenever required during the sprint planning meetings. 
- These scrum controls help control chaos that occurs during the development process. 
- All the above mentioned scrum controls play a great role in the following stages of the scrum:
  1. Defined processes
  2. Project cost
  3. Final product
  4. Responsiveness to the environment
  5. Completion date
  6. Knowledge transfer
  7. Team flexibility creativity
  8. Probability of success

Scrum, we can say is an enhanced version of the iterative and incremental object oriented development cycle. 
The software releases in a scrum are planned according to the below mentioned variables:
  1. Time pressure: Time frame required to make most of the competitive advantage.
  2. Quality
  3. Resource: It includes staff availability and funds.
  4. Vision (system vision)
  5. Competition: What is required to gain the competitive edge?
  6. Customer requirements: How the current system can be enhanced?
All the above mentioned can be modified according to the development plan during the project. But any processes carried out further should take these changed variables in to account. A system that requires a complicate and complex development process require appropriate control and maximum and efficient control.
