Many organizations are gradually catching up with the tide of adopting agile practices at workplace, but they seem to be struggling with how to choose the agile practices and mix them into their IT software project development and management. These organizations have already had their own development styles, many of which have adhered to the traditional plan-driven methods such as waterfall. The inherent corporate culture of resisting to change or hesitation to abandon what they have established for a whole new methodology hampers the process change. In this paper, we will review the current state of agile adoption in business organizations and propose a new approach to IT project development and management by blending Scrum, an agile method, into traditional plan-driven project development and management. The management activity involved in Scrum is discussed, the team and meeting composing of Scrum are investigated, the challenges and benefits of applying Scrum in traditional IT project development and management are analyzed, the blending structure is illustrated and discussed, and the iterative process with Scrum and planned process without Scrum are compared.
