Key Takeaways

Is Scrum easy to Implement?

Implementing Scrum can be challenging to implement as it requires a significant shift in mindset and culture, but it's designed to be flexible and adaptable. With the right support, teams can successfully implement Scrum and reap the benefits of improved collaboration, faster delivery, and higher quality.

What are all the roles in the Scrum team?

The Scrum team includes the Product Owner, Scrum Master, and Development Team. The Product Owner is responsible for maximizing the value of the product, the Scrum Master ensures the Scrum framework is followed, and the Development Team is responsible for delivering the product.

What is the difference between waterfall and Agile?

Waterfall is a linear project management approach that emphasizes completing one phase before moving onto the next. Agile, on the other hand, is an iterative approach that emphasizes collaboration, adaptability, and flexibility. Agile focuses on delivering working software frequently, while waterfall emphasizes delivering a complete product at the end of the project.
