Difference between Scrum and Agile methodology

Hi All,

In my project I am solely responsible for the development and testing of the application.Only other guy involved is the Business Analyst who interacts with the client at the beginning for the requirement.

*** I am not aware of these SDLC methodologies. So i would like to know what are these methodologies, what is the difference btwn Agile and Scrum methods, is Scrum a subset of Agile or both are completely diff.

For a team involving 1 or 2 members(developers). What is the methodology used and Why?.


I will explain the process involved with my project...so that u can tell me what is the methodology used.

1) Initial requirement gathering by business analyst,then he shares the details with me.
2) Depending on the requirement initially I design a User Interface and share it with the client.If the client approves well and good, I will go ahead with the implementation.
3) Once the coding part is completed...I start testing the application and share the link with the Client for testing.Once the client is satisfied with the results...we move it to production after business hours(becos of enhancement to existing proj).Again the application is tested by the User and me.If everthing goes well thats it.



Only for one project I was working with another team member..becos she has to schedule a job using SSIS which i am not aware of.
So it is a team of two for this project.I would like to know what is this methodology called or which is the methodology best suited for a team of 1 and a team of 2.


Thank you.

Prathap.

Hello Prathap,

Scrum is not different than Agile but, rather, is a form or type of Agile. It focuses on small or light iterations through your Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC) that are called "Sprints", which tend to group like features or deliverables together so as to allow pieces or parts of a greater system to be delivered in smaller chunks or parts.

The Wikipedia page for Scrum (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scrum_(development) ) offers multiple resources that may assist you.

I hope this helps.

My Best,

scrum is one of the agile methods which is used in agile projects and its a part of agile methodology. Scrum is the software or method which is used in most of the projects.
