The origin of agile and scrum (and the use of rugby as a metaphore) is "The Knowledge Creating Company" by prof Nonaka and Takeuchi. When you read that book, you realize that Scrum as it is practised today, in nothing resembles the ideas of Nonaka and Takeuchi. So, my answer is "yes". Even the scrum metaphore is wrong: the book uses team play in rugby as an example. Scrum is not team play and agile, it's standing still.

Humanity has the stars in its future, and that future is too important to be lost under the burden of juvenile folly and ignorant superstition. - Isaac Asimov
