Abstract: Software development has been inevitable in the modern era. In the olden days, organisations followed intense traditional software process; but currently, the focus has turned greatly towards agile methodologies. In agile methodology, scrum is the mostly followed process. But it comes with a bunch of technical and generic issues. For instance, assigning, prioritising and integrating product backlog items prove to be difficult to deal with in agile methodology. On the other hand, it poses several other generic issues ranging from environment problems due to idle team participants and developer-tester issues. In this paper mainly concentrates on overcoming the technical issues mentioned above with the assistance of a framework which is perfectly refined in addition to the introduction of a new term called RScrum which is the extension of scrum which will greatly help to overcome the glitches.

Keywords: agile; scrum; staging priority; cyclomatic complexity; product backlog items; PBI; sprint.
