Adaption is one of the Scrum pillars that enable empirical process control. The other ones are Inspection and Transparency.

Agile Manifesto

In February 2001, 17 people met in Snowbird, Utah, for an exchange and discussion about their ways of software development. They followed different methods and agreed on a list on their shared ideas and the basic thoughts they had in common.
