Jeff Dalton describes a common scenario in which companies say they are agile, and say they perform Scrum techniques, but in practice they are not. For example, some may attempt to play the game Planning Poker without any cards. But the game is not the point. The values are the point. For agile to thrive, there cannot be a type mismatch between the values, methods and techniques.
