"What are the similarities and differences between Scrum and waterfall?" That's a frequent question, and the answer follows. Scrum and waterfall methods both involve planning followed by forms of execution, monitoring and controlling. However, there are distinctions.
To best explain key differences, side-by-side comparisons were created on multiple areas such as scope management, quality management, control management, team management, etc. The information is included in the appendix of the book, Agile Scrum: Your Quick Start Guide with Step-by-Step Instructions. An excerpt is provided here. This post is titled, Side-by-Side Comparisons of Agile Scrum and Waterfall Models: A Quick Look at Team Management. (Note: In project management, team management is sometimes referred to as HR management.)
The information is also shared simultaneously on Twitter (@AgileScrumGuide) and Facebook (AgileScrumGuide). This comparison is one from a series. Additional content—comparisons on scope management, quality management, etc.—will be posted subsequently.
