      "almost indistinguishable"
      Really!?! I think the roles are much more explicit in Scrum....and even practices (other than the planning and stand-up) are quite different... without being prescriptive.
      Yes, if you are talking about the way stories are picked up for the iteration/Sprint, there is not much difference. In arriving at an approach for managing projects (small or large) Scrum surely brings much more clarity and over all control than XP does.
      I'm not splitting hairs, pointing out how the SPM is conducted vurses how an XP iteration is planned, would be.

      XP //includes// engineering practices. It is, however, a full-on
      Agile method whose management wrapper is almost indistinguishable
      from that of Scrum, especially now that Scrummers are adopting more
      aspects from the XP lexicon.
