      Here are a few more "primordial Scrum soup" references:

      5) [NonakeTakeuchi95] Nonaka I., Takeuchi H.,The Knowledge Creating
      Company, Oxford University Press, Oxford 1995.

      Extends the concept of Scrum to define the Knowledge Creation cycle:

            tacit knowledge --> externalized knowledge --> (back to tacit)

      that has led to the concept of "Ba", or "shared knowledge spaces". 

      Again, deep down is simply the exploration on how effective
      human communications, collaboration, and techniques, such as
      "structured meetings" lead to knowledge creation, (in our
      industry codified knowledge == software).

      6) [Senge] Senge, P. M.,The fifth discipline : the art and practice
      of the learning organization. New York,Doubleday/Currency, 1990.

            Provides for archetypes that solve and explain systemic problems
            such as the dynamics of communications, delays, interaction,
            feedback loops, hand-offs, etc.

            The Scrum patterns in many cases are solutions to these
            archetypes instances.

      7) [Tunde] Babatunde A Ogunnaike and W. Harmon Ray, Process
      Dynamics, Modeling and Control, Oxford University Press, 1994.

            Provides the arguments for the understanding of what is
            an "empirical process" and how to manage it through
            rapid feedback and empirical measurements.

      8) [Wegner] Wegner, P.,Why Interaction Is More Powerful Than Algorithms,

      Communications of the ACM 40(5): 80-91, 1997.

            Provides strong arguments for the need of rapid feedback loops
            relying on human interaction in software development.

      9) [Goldratt] Goldratt E., The Goal, North River Press Inc., Great
      Barrington, MA, 1992.

            Provides additional insights in solving "systemic problems"
            such as faster feedback, fewer hand-offs, smaller orders,
            small inventories, etc.
