This is the second excerpt from Scrum101, the free intensive online introduction to Scrum, which I introduced several weeks ago. In this second except, I’d like to share the most popular Scrum 101 lesson at the moment. It’s actually the final lesson in the series and it’s about using some of the Extreme Programming practices with Scrum. It is based on my keynote talk at the 2009 Scrum gathering.

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 15 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
