Clarification: Agile vs Scrum
For beginners, it can be challenging to find the difference between Agile and Scrum, but it is important to know the difference between the two.
Agile means a specific range of methods and practices based on the principles and values expressed in the Agile Manifesto. The focused points of Agile are collaboration, self-organization, and cross-functionality of teams.

Why is Scrum essential in project management?
Some of the reasons why Scrum is important for project management are mentioned below:
- Helps in adding business value to your products
- It is a technique for handling software delivery projects that is a part of agile development.
- With this approach's help, you can emphasize the work that holds more importance, thereby disintegrating it into small manageable chunks.

Scrum basics- People and Parts
THE 3355 Principle
The 3355 principle explains how Scrum works as a framework for handling and developing complex and complicated products via "view-and-tune." It is a grouping or genre that follows agile principles and declaration, incorporating three roles, three artifacts, five events, and five values.
It is necessary to know Scrum's three primary roles, and they are as follows:
Development team: The development team's vital work is to carry out the work processes effectively and deliver the project or product. The development team consists of 6 people contain product testers, developers, and business analytics.
Product owner: The product owner is in charge of the project and is held responsible when the methodology of the project is not followed appropriately.
Scrum master: As the name suggests, the scrum master acts as a coach, and it is his work to make sure that each team member analyzes the Scrum and its roles.
Similar to the three roles, three artifacts are a part of the 3355 principles.
Product Backlog: Prioritized by the product owner, the product backlog is a list of functionality that stays attached to the product and helps the team focus and work on the essential features.
Sprint Backlog: sprint backlog is a highlighted list of tasks that need to be completed by the team throughout the sprint.
Product Increment: The team comes with an improved and enhanced product increment, a series of iterations essential for efficient delivery of the product.
Next are five events of the 3355 principles. You will see how we follow these events with the help of some examples of work functions:
Sprint: for completing backlog tasks, team members are allotted a prearranged time frame known as agile sprint.
Daily Scrum: in daily Scrum, the members share their work the day before and the one they will do now to help them keep track of the work carried out by the team of members.
Sprint planning meeting: at the initial stages of a sprint, a planning meeting is held to discuss work that needs to be done at the initial stages sprint, consisting of the product owner and the team. This process is sprint project management.
Scrum review meeting: the scrum review meeting is conducted to get feedback from the product owner review.
Scrum retrospective meeting: the development team holds the scrum retrospective meeting to cast back on end and spot the possible opportunities for improving the next and newsprint.
