Wife + Chaos = Scrum

My wife has inherited this credit derivatives project which seems to be in a huge mess.

She is curious about Scrum, and wants to know if it will bring order to her chaos.

She and her colleagues at the Tier-1 powerhouse have been invited to the Finetix Scrum breakfast on Nov 30.

What was your wife's feedback? Is she likely to adopt SCRUM on her project?

Unfortunately, nobody from her team attended the Scrum Breakfast. In fact, the only person who attended from her company was a former Finetix employee!

From some of the internal work documents that she brings home, I can see that her client is vaguely aware of Agile/XP, but I don't think that they put it into practice.
