Scrum is a framework to handle problems which are complex in nature. Complex Adaptive Problems are also called Empirical problems. That means for certain problems, knowledge can only come from experience and what you see. so the decisions are based on what you see in front of you. Scrum is an implementation of this principle.
One must understand that Scrum is purposefully incomplete. The tools, techniques and practices are not part of the core Scrum. The reason why Scrum is purposefully incomplete is because Scrum is generic and can be applied to any industry. The tools and techniques are specific to industries and are described in the industry specific methods.
