Just had my first article posted to Scrum Alliance website. (Click link to check it out). I originally wrote this 9 months ago to support my Certified Scrum Coach application, but that process finished first.
Here is the abstract:
Scrum contains a set of practices distinct from XP that are intended to enhance project safety. The Scrum framework is simple and intentionally incomplete. Scrum expects that teams will add in practices that are relevant to their specific context. For example, there is wide recognition within the Scrum community that XP engineering practices need to be added to Scrum to create sustainable software projects. So, Scrum and XP together is a good starting point.
