In the past, we often corrected how people spoke about work. Whenever someone mentioned “project”, we would correct it to “product”. With a pedantic tone, we would explain that “we’re building a product here, not doing a project” (with an implicit “you silly”). People who are passionate about Scrum usually don't love projects. They are believed to be the opposite to what we're trying to do with the Scrum Framework. But is that so?

A reality is that most organizations are used to working with projects. So should we start a crusade to banish the word "project" from the lexicon? In this episode, we explore the myth that you cannot do projects with Scrum. Instead, we offer a more constructive perspective that is all about meeting people where they are instead of where you want them to be.
