1_twitter_-SDLC_-_ASG_tweet_on_EXC_-_v170924 lowerres

Agile/Scrum and traditional (waterfall) methods of development and delivery both involve planning followed by forms of execution, monitoring and controlling. However, there are significant distinctions. To help relate key differences, eight side-by-side comparisons were created. In alphabetical order, they are communications management, cost management, integration management, quality management, risk management, scope management, team management (some refer to this as human resources management), and time management. The comparisons were presented earlier via individual posts in this blog.

This article is a recap. It lists all of the comparisons and provides links to the respective posts where further details are available. Here they are:

stacks-image-142cba4-1200x602

"What are the similarities and differences between Scrum and waterfall?" That's a frequent question, and the answer follows. Scrum and waterfall methods both involve planning followed by forms of execution, monitoring and controlling. However, there are distinctions.

To best explain key differences, side-by-side comparisons were created on multiple areas such as scope management, quality management, control management, time management, etc. The information is included in the appendix of the book,
Agile Scrum: Your Quick Start Guide with Step-by-Step Instructions. An excerpt is provided here. This post is titled, Side-by-Side Comparisons of Agile Scrum and Waterfall Models: A Quick Look at Time Management.

The information is also shared simultaneously on Twitter (
@AgileScrumGuide) and Facebook (AgileScrumGuide). This comparison is one from a series. Additional content—comparisons on scope management, communications management, etc.—will be posted subsequently.

Agile Scrum: Your Quick Start Guide with Step-by-Step Instructions is available in digital and print at Amazon. For more on the book, please see the digital media kit at agilescrumguide.com.
