Scrumming

I came across a blog entry today that talks about a scrum gathering.

Huh?

According to the dictionary, a scrum is:

1. A play in Rugby in which the two sets of forwards mass together around the ball and, with their heads down, struggle to gain possession of the ball.

2. A disordered or confused situation involving a number of people.

Hmmm. So what is a "scrum gathering?" At wikipedia, I found this explanation of scrum.

Apparently it is a management and team effectiveness technique, that has evolved within IT and project management, as a way to boost team performance and achieve breakthroughs. Wonder how it compares to other similar techniques?
