Agile & Scrum Background

Agile

Agile practices are the delivery methods of choice for delivery in Product Development, Software Development, and other areas where learning and incremental improvement are important.  Agile practices are also used in many business functions such as HR, Marketing, and PR to understand and streamline the flow of work.

Agile practices are based on a set of core principles that can be found in the Agile Manifesto and Agile Principles 

Scrum

Scrum is the foremost Agile practice used by teams (~70% of Agile teams use a derivative of Scrum).  Scrum provides a lightweight framework by which a team can organise itself. Scrum is based on empirical process control and brings together a set of iterative and incremental Agile practices.
