    I know what scrum is, and in know what bim is, but that graph doesn't make any sense to me.

    Scrum is a part of agile software development. Projects are delivered in chunks made up of a ready to use function (start a new project, enter data and save it; print a report; etc.). The delivered value is produced in a dedicated period of time called a sprint.

    In a sense, the traditional schematic, SD and. CD passes are like sprints. Similarly, fast track delivery files the same idea.

    I think there are a lot of applicable processes between the two industries (which is probably why software has started using the term 'Architect'. I wish I understood how they get away with that given the strict laws regarding the use of the word).

    At the the end of the day, having a process is better than not having one. Wherever you get your inspiration, be consistent and clear about what is expected and follow through.

    You'll want to dig into Agile Project Management.
    "Scrum is an agile method of iterative and incremental product delivery that uses frequent feedback and collaborative decision making."

    https://www.pmi.org/learning/library...ent-scrum-6269

    I haven't done an exhaustive search, but I've yet to see any real case studies of effectively using Agile in the AEC industry.
    As much as we like to think the industry is moving at a blistering pace, I see it more as a lazy stroll on a Sunday afternoon.

    I experimented with it over the course of a few projects but in the end it was not a good "one for one" application.

    As an example, during DD, I did sprints to gather the requirements and document and specify all casework and millwork; doors ; windows, etc in the project. This delivered something of "value" but in the end, it was not useful without the rest of the building.

    In software, what you build IS the final product while we are building a virtual copy of the reality someone else will build in the future. So no, not a good direct application.
