“What is agile?” you may ask.

Well, “Agile” refers to Agile Software Development, which refers to a group of methodologies based on iterative development, where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing cross-functional teams. It promotes leadership, efficient project management, best practice for engineering development, and a business approach which benefits both the customer and the company.

“What is the agile manifesto?”

The agile manifesto:

Scrum

An example of an agile methodology and most widely used one is called “Scrum”. It is a process framework and is lightweight.

  • Process Framework
    This means that Scrum has a set of best practices when software developing that must be followed to be consistent with the framework.

    The overhead of the process is kept as light as possible.

Benefits of scrum:

  • Increase the quality of the deliverables
  • Cope better with change (and expect the changes)
  • Provide better estimates while spending less time creating them
  • Be more in control of the project schedule and state
