      How about this:

      People in your organization want to get better, so they decide on one of the following approaches:

      A) Adopt Scrum.
      * Major upheaval ensues.
      * If they do it poorly, disaster. Otherwise, they end up with something like XP.
      B) Adopt Kanban.
      * Slow evolutionary changes.
      * If they do it poorly, they're about where they were before. Otherwise they end up with something like XP.
      C) Adopt XP.
      * Let's face it - this doesn't happen.

      In all cases, "doing it poorly" usually means not understanding why it's being done.

      Start selling Scrum and Kanban as alternative ways to get your team to XP.
