Agile Manifesto



Agile isn’t a methodology – a set of fixed and typically highly prescriptive set of processes. Agile frameworks define a purposefully minimal and incomplete set of approaches to planning, managing, and executing work.

Agile frameworks typically fall into two categories:

  • Frameworks designed for teams.
  • Frameworks designed to help organisations practice Agile at scale, across many teams.

Ultimately, each framework operates as the guardrails – the minimum set of rules – for teams to self-manage within.


  • Choose a framework from the list below.
  • Apply the basics from the start of the next Sprint.
