Back in the 90s, stiff and inflexible software development processes were not satisfactory – they needed to be more lightweight and flexible. And so, new processes like Scrum were innovated. Despite that, it wasn’t until 2001 that there was a name to bringall the similar development currents together. A few leading minds sat together and specified values and principles with which one could develop software more efficiently, and named this sort of development agile.
