There is often confusion about Scrum and XP. The are both Agile frameworks because both were represented as part of the creation of the Agile Manifesto and yet they have their differences. Is it possible to use elements of both? And, if we wanted to do that how should we go about it?
I tried to answer these questions as part of the 2010 Shanghai Scrum gathering and I’ve finally found time to created a version of that presentation suitable for the web. This is an abbreviated version of the full talk which lasted over 40 minutes but I tried hard to hit the key points. It’s just over 3 minutes long.
Finally here’s a copy of the original paper that talks about combining scrum and xp that I wrote with Ken back in 2002. It’s dated now, although it may give you some different ideas: http://www.informit.com/articles/article.aspx?p=26057
