178RE: [XP] RE: [scrumdevelopment] Agile and CMM are contradictory
- Dec 9, 2001You are quite correct. I was trying to get across the point that this is a
cross-species thing. Although the idea of mating a snake and a dog is quite
interesting, it is impossible. We used to refer to thing like "agile rup" as
a pig on roller skates; it's still a pig, just a little faster.
The excerpt talks about the theoretical basis. Self-organization after a
team has been give a definitive list of tasks to perform is quite different
from a team that has to think up the list of tasks from scratch.

I don't see what the excerpt has to do with this thread. In practice, there
are degrees of self-organization, etc. Perhaps we are discussing from
different vantage points, one theoretical and one practical.
