I attended Coplien's lecture for his Vloeberghs Leerstoel at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. To the unknown contributer who added the fact: did you?
Agile, a pattern language?
I am analyzing Agile software development and came to conclussion that it is an organisational pattern language. It came to me because I heard Coplien's lecture in Belgrade back in 2004. He was also talking about difference in nature between patterns and methodologys. Now I understand it.
Of course it's a pattern language
Some of Scrum and most of the structural components of XP came out of organizational patterns research at Bell Laboratories. See the Wikipedia page: Organizational patterns
Beedle, Devos, Schwaber, Sutherland and others recognized early on that Scrum was a pattern language, and they published some supplementary patterns to the Organizational Patterns of Agile Software Development book, which Beedle recognizes as the standing comprehensive representation of what Agile development is. (You can find citations in the Organizational Patterns Wikipedia article.)
