Extending Scrum to form a Nexus
- Nexus modifies one artifact to eliminate dependencies: Product backlog
- Nexus adds two Nexus artifacts: Nexus Sprint Backlog, Integrated Increment
- Nexus adds five additional Nexus events that resemble the five original Scrum events: Refinement, Nexus Sprint planning, Nexus Daily Scrum, Nexus Sprint review, and Nexus Sprint retrospective
- Nexus adds one new Nexus role Nexus Integration Team (NIT)
