Overview

I find it instructive to introduce Scrum’s underlying principles by comparing them with the beliefs that drive more traditional, plan-driven, sequential development. Doing so makes it easier for people to understand how Scrum is similar to or different from something they know and understand.

The goal of comparing agile principles with traditional development principles is not to make the case that plan-driven, sequential development is bad and that Scrum is good. Both are tools in the professional developer’s toolkit; there is no such thing as a bad tool, rather just inappropriate times to use that tool. As I described briefly in the context of the Cynefin framework in Chapter 1, Scrum and traditional, plan-driven, sequential development are appropriate to use on different classes of problems.
