Scrum is what's in the Scrum Guide. It really is quite clearly defined, and perhaps that's the difference.

Agile(with a capital A) is a marketing term created by people that wanted to commercialize the Manifesto for agile software development. The word "agile" is an adjective in the English language that is defined as "able to move quickly and easily".  Organizations in today's world wide economy benefit from being able to adapt to change quickly. 

Scrum is a proven framework that uses empirical methods to incrementally deliver value to stakeholders.  Scrum enables organizations to be agile.

My take on this. Agile process is a generic term that encompasses several different flavors of software development. Scrum is one model of agile process. Agile is a generic term for a development paradigm that is light-weight, iterative, and emphasizes communication over documentation and planning.

A scrum or agile process is an excellent way to run a development project if you have a talented, motivated, and committed team. If you have a team filled with slackers and complainers, an agile model will not magically make them more productive. It takes a lot of skill and discipline to utilize an agile/scrum process. if anyone know more about Agile and scrum. kindly share your ideas here.
