What is agile, scrum, lean and DevOps?

These methodologies have all developed to ensure that processes are as efficient and smooth as they can be. 

Agile is a way of working more flexibly and productively, especially in today’s fast-paced world. The principle can be applied to different fields, from agile business analysis to agile development, agile project management to agile teams.

Scrum is an iterative and incremental agile methodology for managing product development, which started in the software development field but is increasingly used in other areas too.

Lean thinking is a way to eliminate wasteful processes and improve things, based on what customers want. Kanban is a lean method and includes a popular visual tool to manage workflow.

SAFe® (Scaled Agile Framework) is a new way of working that combines attributes of Lean thinking with agile methodologies.

DevOps combines development and operations to make them work better together to improve communication and get speedier delivery.

All working together and put into practice properly? You’ll get phenomenal value – and transform how you work.
