Definition of XP

Acronym for eXtreme Programming.


Many organizations look at implementing Scrum with their software teams. Scrum by itself does not specify a specific set of engineering practices. Many teams find success by wrapping Scrum around XP engineering practices. The key is to develop and “inspect and adapt” behavior with any scrum implementation otherwise, your practices will not evolve as they should. Think of it like training wheels for a bike, eventually you want the team to take ownership and take the training wheels off the bike.
