Abstract: Business Process Reengineering (BPR) is an organizational strategy seeking identification of critical factors affecting software development practices in Software Engineering Management (SEM). The agile approaches opened the door of BPR in software development organizations. Dynamically changing technological environment has invited software development organizations, towards adoption of reengineering of strategies and practices. Nowadays, Scrum has been trending as an agile framework for Software Engineering Management (SEM) in software development organizations but considerable research work has not been done with Scrum and its successful implementation yet. The goal of this research is to highlight weaknesses and limitations of Scrum like project level documentation, planning, estimation, progress tracker, CICD etc.; and identification of challenges and issues with implementation of Scrum in software project development like large scaled project in distributed work environment with multiple Scrum teams, organizational structure, lack of knowledge ad awareness about Scrum; using empirical analysis and literature studies. The result of this research will open the door for the next stage of research to overcome the limitation and issues with implementation of Scrum and raise a request of BPR towards focus on improvement in SEM practices in software development organizations by proposing proper training about the empiricism control theory of Scrum that helps organizations in understanding the successful implementation of Scrum and its benefits. This research also raises a question in the form of suggestion that it is good time for a hybrid form of Scrum with other standard agile based frameworks or traditional SDLC methodologies.
