    A perceptive reader finds similarities between Agile estimation and the Wideband Delphi practices that have been around for decades:

    As Ken Schwaber says, there’s nothing new in Scrum. Planning Poker seems to be the latest step of a continuing evolution. If we do our jobs right, all these buzz words (including “Scrum”) will be gone in a few years as we absorb them into our normal practices.

    Scrum is a term I’ve only recently come across. I guess I’ve a lot more to learn until I get past the buzzwords.

    Great info Michael.
