SCRUM – What About It and How Can We Make It Work for Us?

SCRUM and AGILE are the latest buzzwords in the Project Management arena. Agile is not a methodology but people say “Agile Methodology”. SCRUM is a part of Agile Movement but people say “Agile Scrum”. Agile is a mindset, a set of values and principles. It is a new way of working to realize business value sooner. “Being Agile” and “doing Agile” are two different concepts. Scrum is part of the agile movement.  How does Scrum fit into Agile? Are both the same? Are they different? How are they related?
