Agile Scrum Methodology uses

Scrum is widely used by software development teams. In fact, it’s the most popular agile methodology. According to the 12th annual State of Agile report, 70% of software teams use Scrum or a Scrum hybrid. However, Scrum has spread to other business functions including IT and marketing where there are projects that must move forward in the presence of complexity and ambiguity. Leadership teams are also basing their agile management practices on Scrum, often combining it with lean and Kanban practices (subgroups of agile project management)
