The Rational Unified Process (R) is a Software Engineering Process. It provides disciplined approach to assign tasks and responsibilities within any Software Development Organization. Its goal is to ensure the production of high quality software that meets the needs of end-users, within predictable schedule and budget. It enhances team productivity and is a process product, developed and maintained by IBM Rational Software.

All efforts, including modeling, is organized into disciplines (formerly work flows) in Unified Process. RUP consists three disciplines like Business Modeling, Requirements, Analyis and Design. Agile Unified Process (AUP) is a subset of RUP and it combines all the 3 RUP disciplines into a single modeling discipline called Agile modeling.

on the commonalities and differences between agile methods and the Rational Unified Process (RUP): “At their root, the RUP and agile methods share a number of common values: the primacy of executable artifacts and the importance of growing software incrementally and iteratively are perhaps the two most interesting. […] Although this is a gross simplification, agile methods leverage and give guidance to the social dynamics among a relatively small set of developers, whereas the RUP address the interactions among a larger set of stakeholders.”
