You know you do not do iterative development when:
  • Iterations are longer than 6 weeks
  • Iterations are not time-boxed
  • Team tries to finish all specification before programming
  • Iteration doesn't result in workable code
  • Iteration doesn't include testing
You know you do not use Scrum when:
  • Your product backlog doesn't include estimates
  • You can't generate a release burn-down chart and don't know your velocity
  • The team doesn't know who the product owner is
  • There is a project manager in the project who is involved with the work of the team
