Comparison Between Project Roles of Agile (Scrum Master) and Waterfall (Project Manager) Methodology
Whether it is team workflow management or timing, these tools help to ensure that everything is going well without any obstacles.
agility is defined as “the continuous readiness of an entity to rapidly, inherently proactively or reactively, embrace change, through high-quality, simplistic, economical components and relationships with its environment [Gwanhoo L, Weidong X ].” Agility is the promptness in accepting a change or action. There are two dimensions. It can be accepting and adapting to changes or ability to re-engineer the existing process. Agile methodology is “a set of flexible techniques [Maruping LM, Venkatesh V].” It helps the software development team to sustain in a volatile environment. The teams are responsible for managing the software development process, resolving issues, making decisions and delegating tasks to other teams.
The selection of a certain methodology depends on the particular project and the company that performs it. Agile and Waterfall software development methodologies are rather different and good in their respective way.
