April Info Exchange Meeting

April 17,2014

" Agile is not Scrum but Scrum is Agile"


      Agile software development is defined by the Agile Alliance as “a group of software development methods based on iterative and incremental development, where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing, cross-functional teams.”Scrum, Extreme Programming, and Lean (Kanban) are some of the more popular agile methods or frameworks. Each having variant approaches, but the primary agile principles is the same across all agile frameworks.   In order to truly leverage what agile frameworks like Scrum, Extreme Programing and Lean are designed to offer, you must recognized the fact that Agile is not Scrum but Scrum is Agile.


Agile values individuals and interactions over processes and tools, working software over comprehensive documentation, customer collaboration over contract negotiation, and responding to change over following a plan. Agile is a way of thinking and Agile frameworks (Scrum, Extreme Programming and Lean) provide the rules for getting work done. These rules are what differentiate Agile’s Scrum and Lean frameworks from methodologies like waterfall.


In this session: we will experience a deep dive into the four core values of Agile using a Scrum sprint. Participants will come away with a clear understanding, as it relates to software development, of the difference between Agile and a Agile Framework and how the agile values are designed to change your thinking about delivering value to the business. This session will be an introductory lecture on the four core values of Agile.
