Reading the article and the book will also help the people who are
thinking about exteding Scrum/Agile outside the software development
world. It is this outside world that brought the principles to us, we
are now in the process of adapting the generic principles to our world
of software development. Anyway, that is how I think about it.

> Their thinking has been updated and extended in a new book that will
