Scrum Bestiary


If you’ve read your Scrum literature you’ll definitely heard of pigs and chickens. Ade Miller however has identified a few behaviors that you might see in your team that are bad or really bad. And just for the fun of it he came up with a number of animals to represent the different behaviors. The “new” animals in the Scrum farm are:



  • Cows – contribute to the team but are hard to rely on since they have their own agenda.

  • Seagulls – act like part of the team but they never contribute, just get in the way.

  • Foxes – steal resources, including pigs.

  • Rubber ducks – feel out of place and don’t want to be part of the whole Scrum thingy.
