Agile has a problem with introducing Processes and Tools (by definition, as the blog post describes). However, Scrum offers a solution to this problem by creating an Agile space or bubble within those organizations that are still stuck with the traditional methodologies (Waterfall, etc.). So Scrum is a nice way to introduce organizations to Agile concepts but it is certainly not the final goal.

IMHO, the idea is that over time the organization will adopt new Agile practices and not depend on Scrum anymore. In practice, however, many organizations think they are Agile after they introduced Scrum, which is a simple fallacy. After all, becoming Agile is about a culture change and not about the introduction of a new process framework.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
