What Does Pigs And Chickens Mean?
Pigs and chickens was a term used in Scrum software development to describe the two different perspectives that developers and business stakeholders were thought to hold in sprint planning meetings, daily stand-ups and retrospectives.
In this metaphor, software developers held the pig's point of view and business stakeholders held the chicken's point of view.
The term is derived from a fable: One day, a chicken suggested to his friend, the pig, that they should open a restaurant. The pig agreed and asked what the name of the restaurant should be. The chicken suggested the name "Ham and Eggs." The pig objected to the restaurant's name because it implied that his head was the only head on the chopping block.
