Agile is really a manifestation of "agility", the agile mindset. Although to some extent it is true that Agile is a software development process. Once adopted, the team gets in to the rhythm of value-driven thinking. Agile adoption is a journey, it would be very relevant discussion to understand the difference between Agile, Scrum and XP or Extreme Programming disciplines. These terms are used frequently in the agile community. These ways of thinking play a critical role when explaining agile adoption approaches. Agile is a mindset defined by its values and principles manifested through the embraced practices by teams. Agile, as defined by the signatories of the Agile Manifesto, does not dictate any specific practices, but leaves the concept open to any set of practices that help manifest or achieve the vales and principles in an organization. Scrum, similar to XP, are a pre-bundled set of agile practices.
