Are you committed, or just involved?

A few days back, I had downloaded a Scrum Guide from InfoQ. Yesterday, while going through it, I came across this beautiful piece – here’s straight from the book –

The Scrum Team consists of the ScrumMaster, the Product Owner, and the Team. Scrum Team members are called “pigs.” Everyone else is a “chicken.” Chickens cannot tell “pigs” how to do their work. Chickens and pigs come from the story –

“A chicken and a pig are together when the chicken says, “Let’s start a restaurant!”

The pig thinks it over and says, “What would we call this restaurant?”

The chicken says, “Ham n’ Eggs!”

The pig says, “No thanks, I’d be committed, but you’d only be involved!”

So are you a pig or a chicken (not just in your job, but in whatever you do)?  😉
