Agile development gets more appreciation from the market due to its flexible nature and high productivity. Scrum provides better management of the processes as compared to other agile modes. Scrum model has several features and strengths but still it lacks in engineering practices and quality. This research deals with the improvement of Scrum processes for better management and quality of software using the infusion of different practices from internationally renowned capability maturity model integration (CMMI) quality standard. Survey is used as a research design to validate the proposed framework. Statistical analysis shows that there is a profound effect on Scrum model due to the proposed research developing high quality software.
