tested end-user features at the end of the every increment. RUP *can*
be applied this way, but the existence of waterfall-like named phases
often lead to the waterfall-like implementations.
yvonnecos, RUP is not a process, but rather a process framework that
could be used for creating very different processes - close to Scrum
or very distant from Scrum. If I understood your question correctly
you are considering the possibility of changing some particular RUP
implementation into Scrum. Could you, then, describe in a bit more
detail what your RUP implementation is like?
