Hello Osama,

Scrum or similar Agile frameworks can be used for a variety of projects, not just software development. I have used it for multiple efforts related to information technology deployments. Though Scrum specifically doesn't call for a "Project Manager" role, most will argue that a PM is in the best position to take on the facilitating role of a Scrum Master. I would further highlight that PMI-ACP focuses primarily on Agile concepts for which many those certified work to actively apply the Agile environment throughout the organization.

Thanks a lot Brian ,

its more clear now , i feel that it is much more like an extended practice of the PM in real life with more customization in the principles and techniques

Osama -

Agile values and principles can be adapted for use in any type of project but specific frameworks, methodologies or practices might be suitable to one or a few only.

For example, pair programming which is an XP practice is directly applicable to software development or configuration only but non-solo work on a single work item is much more broadly applicable.

Hi Osama,

Not at all. Agile is applied to every kind of project and industry that you want. What is required is as Kiron said, adapt to your own needs the methodologies, frameworks, etc. The only key thing to keep in mind is that before beginning with the implementation, analyze very well if that's what you need or not.

Hi Jesus ,

you mentioned a good point about the analysis of the needs , but of course that require more knowledge to have the skill of identification, do u see the certification is enough for that , or experience will achieve it ?

I am PMI-ACP and we use Scrum to create non-software products in my actual work place. BUT unfortunatelly the certifications are focused on software. I hope it will change in the future.

Agile is not exclusively for software development, but it strongly favors software development and is much more common than in other industries. The Agile values and principles we often cite come from a document titled "Manifesto for Agile Software Development." It's still pretty exciting to find an Agile environment outside of IT.
