TLDR Scrum is an agile methodology that promotes collaboration, continuous improvement, and delivering value to the customer through working software in an incremental and iterative way.
Scrum Methodology and Practices

Scrum enables teams to work collaboratively, self-organize, and continuously improve by reflecting on victories and making necessary corrections when things don't go well.

Scrum is a framework that promotes delivering value to the customer through working software in an incremental and iterative way, enabling rapid feedback and continuous improvement.
The sprint retrospective is a vital part of continuous improvement, where the team reflects on what worked well, what didn't work well, what should be done differently, and what still puzzles them, using problem detection techniques to drive improvement.
Scrum Master Role and Responsibilities
The scrum master in Scrum is a skilled servant leader who facilitates scrum ceremonies, removes obstacles for the team, and acts as a process coach and mentor, but they should not infringe on the team's empowerment and ability to self-organize.
The mindset of the team and the shift required in thought process and culture are very essential to accomplish the agility required by organization.
