      Once a student elegantly stated, "Oh, Scrum is simply an interaction
      model." I love the pith of that.

      I now talk about Scrum as a communication model for small,
      cross-functional, creative teams. It models communication among the
      team members and with those that are paying for their work. Then the
      conversation continues with what is value and to whom.
