While struggeling on a customer project, I came across a post in Eric Lee's blog The root of all evil in Scrum
We are struggeling on a customer project to get scrum working. I joined the team a couple of months back, when they had allready been scrumming for a while, but I found a SCRUM team in a big crises. Yes they were scrumming (sort of), but as I asked them, why?
To quote Eric Lee: "If you have some kind of required process in place and you can’t succinctly explain exactly how that process enables you to deliver working software in a better, faster, and cheaper manner, then drop the process. It’s not helping."
