Scrum or Agile Scrum ?
- Well, when the IT industry talks about the Scrum framework, it’s also often we hear the term “Agile Scrum” along the same lines as “Scrum”.
- It led some of us in the industry to think and look for differences between the terms “Agile Scrum” and “Scrum”.
- “Agile Scrum” and “Scrum” terms do both refer to the same thing.
- They both refer to the Scrum software engineering process.
- Then why do we sometimes use the word “Agile” in front “Scrum” ?
- It’s because the Scrum framework fully embraced and embedded the Agile manifesto (Manifesto for Agile Software Development) to its core process, principles, and underlying philosophy.
- That brings us to understand the Agile manifesto and the values of the scrum process better before we deep-dive the technicalities of the scrum process.
What is Agile Manifesto ?
- Agile manifesto values are :
- Individuals and interactions over processes and tools,
- Working software over comprehensive documentation,
- Customer collaboration over contract negotiation,
- Responding to change over following a plan.
- While the factors on the right-hand side do still possess significant values, the agile manifesto appreciates and prioritizes the factors on the left-hand side higher.
- The elements favored by the Agile manifesto have been carefully time-tested and chosen to :
- Serve clients and stakeholders better and create value for them with software,
- Enhance the profession of software engineering regardless of your role, title, and career level.
