Agile is a flexible way of working on projects, especially in software development. Instead of having one big plan that you stick to no matter what, agile lets you break things down into smaller, more manageable chunks. These smaller parts are called iterations or sprints, and you work on them one at a time.

The idea is to involve customers or stakeholders throughout the process. This means you're not just working in isolation; you're constantly checking in with them to make sure you're on the right track. And because you're delivering these smaller pieces regularly, they can give feedback and make changes along the way.

Another big part of agile is being adaptable. Plans can change, and that's okay. You're encouraged to adjust and refine your approach as you go, based on what you learn and the feedback you receive.

Agile also promotes teamwork. Instead of working in silos, everyone collaborates closely, sharing ideas and expertise. This helps to build a strong sense of ownership and accountability within the team.


Scrum is a framework used in agile project management, particularly in software development. It's structured around collaboration, iteration, and flexibility, aiming to deliver high-value products iteratively and incrementally.

In Scrum, projects are divided into small, manageable units of work called "sprints," usually lasting from one to four weeks. During each sprint, a cross-functional team works together to complete a set of tasks, focusing on delivering a potentially shippable product increment by the end of the sprint.

Key roles in Scrum include the Product Owner, who represents the stakeholders and defines the product backlog (a prioritized list of features or tasks); the Scrum Master, who facilitates the Scrum process and removes any obstacles the team may encounter; and the Development Team, which is responsible for delivering the product increment.

Scrum emphasizes frequent communication, transparency, and adaptability, with regular meetings such as the daily stand-up (a short daily check-in meeting), sprint planning (where the team decides what work to tackle in the upcoming sprint), sprint review (where the team demonstrates the completed work to stakeholders), and sprint retrospective (where the team reflects on the sprint and identifies areas for improvement).
