A project begins as an idea. For the idea to be implemented into a real project, a sequence of steps must be followed. These steps form the project development methodology. A proper way of planning for these steps is needed. Each project development methodology requires resources. Such resources should be planned for so the project can use them in the right manner.
Any project development process also requires labor from a number of individuals. In all projects, there are different participants who play different roles toward ensuring that the project goal is achieved. Such labor should be coordinated in the right way so as to ensure that everything runs smoothly.

Agile is a collection of practices and methods set up in the Agile Manifesto that includes elements such as cross-functionality of teams, self-organization, collaboration, and more. Scrum, on the other hand, is the actual framework that employed for the implementation of the Agile-based development.
Think of it as a diet and a recipe. Suppose you are following a vegetarian diet that has a set of principles and methods to follow to achieve a particular health-related goal.
