Is Agile a Framework or Methodology?

Agile is a term used in software development and project management to describe a flexible way of working. But is it a framework or a methodology? Let’s break it down in simpler terms.

Agile as a Philosophy:
Think of Agile as a set of guiding ideas, not strict rules. It values things like teamwork, adaptability, and focusing on what the customer needs. It believes in being flexible and responsive to change.

Agile as a Framework:
Agile is often put into practice using specific toolkits called frameworks. These frameworks give teams a structured way to use Agile principles. For example, Scrum, Kanban, and others provide ready-made plans for how to work together, set goals, and hold meetings.

Agile as a Methodology:
Some call Agile a methodology, but that’s a bit confusing. Methodologies are like detailed instruction manuals, telling you exactly what to do. Agile is more about letting teams figure out the best way to work for their situation. However, there are methodologies that use Agile principles as a foundation, like Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD).

In simple terms, Agile is a way of thinking that encourages flexibility, teamwork, and customer focus. It’s not just one thing; it can be used with different frameworks or adapted as needed. So, it’s not just a framework or methodology; it’s a flexible approach to getting work done.
