Scrum may not be Agile

Post by WiltonMarks » Fri May 30, 2014 3:05 am

I see all these terms thrown around here, Agile, Scrum, XP, etc. and wahned to just point out that there are many certified PMPs that do not consider Scrum an Agile process. I am not sure I agree with them, or not, but I have heard some very interesting arguments both ways.

I just wanted to throw this in here ;-)

Now I ve heard everything. How do you figure? One of the original signatories to the Agile Manifesto was the inventor of scrum and it's not agile? Come on.

Scrum is *very* agile.

Ditto! Scrum was developed to be Agile by definition. It's possible that some team version of scrum implementation may not look agile, but that's a reflection of the team.

Exactly. I don't know how some people come up with such statements, like "Scrum may not be Agile" !
