Derived from the popular business fable of ‘The Chicken and the Pig’. (Pig was discussed here). ‘The Chicken’ is representative of the individuals or parties who are involved in assisting ‘The Pigs’ (aka the core Scrum team) but are not fully committal in every aspect. They need guidance and training from the ‘The Chicken’ to increase their involvement in the project.
