Similarities and Differences Between Scrum and Atern Introduction Traditional project management approaches have proven inefficiency and ineffective due to the rate of project management failures experienced in the past (Coleman & Verbruggen, 1998; Vinekar, Slinkman, & Nerur, 2006). These failures led to the emergence of Agile Project Management. Different Agile project management approaches have been designed to improve project management. This work explores the similarities and differences between Scrum and Atern project management approaches. Similarities between Scrum and Atern The first similarity between Scrum and Atern is that these two agile project management approaches rely on a common core philosophy (Ambler, 2002; Guntamukkala, Wen, & Tarn, 2006; Jyothi & Nageswara Rao, 2012, Milanov & Njegus, 2012).

Agile software seeks to help others to achieve a given end by adding value to individuals their interactions rather than focus on tools and processes (Stoica, Mircea, & Ghilic-Micu, 2013). Scrum and Atern seeks to add value by improving working software rather than focus on comprehensive documentation (Stoica, Mircea, & Ghilic-Micu, 2013; Vinekar, Slinkman, & Nerur, 2006).
