AGILE TESTING Questions and Answers

What are the differences between RUP (Rational Unified Process) and Scrum methodologies?

RUPSCRUM
– Formal Cycle is defined across four phases, but some workflows can be concurrent– Each sprint is a complete cycle
– Formal project plan, associated with multiple iterations is used.– No end to end project plan. Each next iteration plan is determined at the end of the current iteration
– Scope is predefined ahead of the project start and documented in the scope document. During the project, scope can be revised.– It uses a project backlog instead of scope scrum
– Artifacts include Scope Document, formal functional requirements package, system architecture document, development plan, test scripts, etc.– Operational software is the only formal artifacts
– Recommended for long term, large, enterprise level projects with medium to high complexity– Recommended for quick enhancements and organization that are not dependent on a deadline
