...Learn TDD with Codemanship

Putting Words In My Mouth - I Never Said That Scrum Doesn't Work

An email plonked into my fuzzbox this very afternoon pointing me towards this outburst against my assertion that Scrum spreads like a virus (as do many ideas - good and bad).

The blogger in question writes:

In Jason's post, he exposes his believe that Scrum is nothing more than Snake Oil sold by consultants

He's putting words into my mouth (and that's some feat with someone who loves the sound of his own voice as much as I do). I never said that Scrum was Snake Oil. I said it was simple and quick to learn, and that's why it spreads so rapidly. I'm simply commenting on how Scrum spreads, not what Scrum is.

Boy, this is fun, isn't it?
