Eh, I have to disagree. The concepts in “scrum” are used in a dozen different ways under a dozen different names. “Critical Path”, “Stumbling Blocks”, “Impediments”, I’ve heard the same management techniques named different ways over the last 30 years. Most of it in manufacturing environments. When you dig into “Scrum” deeply, you find dozens of acronyms and buzzwords. I challenge anyone to read the Wikipedia entry without rolling their eyes at the pointy-haired-boss management speak buried inside it.
That said, many of the concepts are useful if they are applied correctly, and if Scrum is the particular framework that introduces students to prioritizing their work flow and managing their to-do list then it’s a definitely a net positive.
