Azure DevOps Process Templates

Azure DevOps Process Templates are predefined setups that specify your project's workflow, work item types, and other variables.

Available Process Templates in Azure DevOps

Choosing the appropriate process template in Azure DevOps is essential to project success. Options such as Basic, Agile, Scrum, and CMMI serve unique functions, and making an informed decision has a significant impact on project outcomes.


The Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) is a process and behavioral model that assists organizations in speeding process improvement while also encouraging productive, efficient behaviors that reduce risks in software, product, and service development.


Agile development is iterative software development that reduces the DevOps life cycle into small portions called sprints, which typically run one to four weeks.


Scrum is a framework that allows teams to manage work and solve problems collaboratively in short cycles. Scrum applies Agile ideas to a concrete collection of artifacts, methods, and roles.

CMMI Vs. Agile Vs. Scrum

CMMI focuses on process improvement, Agile is an iterative development methodology, and Scrum is a specific Agile framework. Teams in Azure DevOps can select among these techniques based on their project requirements, with tools and capabilities to support each, allowing flexibility in development processes.

DevOps Vs. Agile

The major distinction between Agile and DevOps is that Agile is an approach for developing and delivering software, whereas DevOps describes how to continually release code using contemporary tools and automated processes.

Agile - How Does Scrum Work? 

Agile is an iterative and incremental method of software development, whereas Scrum is a specific framework within Agile that manages work through short sprints and defined roles.

Scrum Roles

Scrum Roles include:

  • Product Owner
  • Scrum Master
  • Development Team
  • Retrospective
  • Impediment

Product Owner

The ultimate decision-maker for the product's vision and roadmap, delivering value through prioritized backlogs, acceptance criteria, and release management.

Scrum Master

The facilitator and coach enable self-organizing teams, stimulate communication, remove impediments, and maintain their focus on creating value using Scrum techniques.

Development Team

Autonomous and cross-functional specialists responsible for the development, testing, and delivery of product increments, generating value through self-organized execution of prioritized backlogs.

Agile Process

In Azure DevOps, the Agile process is a set of best practices and technologies for iterative and incremental software development. Compared to waterfall techniques, agile prioritise flexibility, adaption, and quick delivery of working software in short cycles known as sprints.

Scrum Process

The Scrum process in Azure DevOps is a subset of the Agile framework that is well-known for its structure and defined roles for managing work in short sprints.

CMMI Process

The CMMI Process in Azure DevOps provides an organized and standardized approach to software development, emphasizing continuous process improvement across five maturity levels.
