ScrumBut is a slightly derogatory term used for describing projects which are using Scrum but skips practice X or Y. Given the derogatory nature of the term, it is interesting to note that most Scrum projects fits this description of ScrumBut quite well. This lightning talk aims to highlight some common characteristics of a ScrumBut. Another aim is to debunk the myth that ScrumButs should be considered harmful. Adopting Scrum is quite challenging, and striving to do it by-the-book can be counter productive. Remember that Scrum is _only_ a way to improve _your_ process.
