327RE: [XP] Scrum and XP
- May 13, 2002I can't seem to find a substantial difference between the XP Planning Game
and Scrum. There are subtle differences, but if the team is adapting their
work as they proceed, I can't see why I starting with one versus the other
would have make any difference in the outcome of the project.
I can see how Scrum would be a way to move towards XP in a "non-XP-friendly"
environment or simply a way to be Agile, if I not using XP programming
If I am in an "XP-friendly" environment, I would not want to complicate
things by introducing Scrum terminology for project management, which is
largely redundant to the Planning Game.
