This video explores a few common myths and misconceptions about agile approaches in general and scrum in particular.
- Let's wrap up this chapter…by discussing a few common myths about Scrum.…Let's start with a simple exercise.…Look at the following items…and identify which ones are required by Scrum.…The answer is none of these items are required by Scrum.…Scrum is too abstract…to require these engineering practices.…None of the other items are enforced by Scrum,…but many Scrum teams use these techniques as best practices.…Perhaps the most common myth about Scrum…is that the daily Scrum is a status meeting.…
It is just a team hug for the development team.…They can conduct the event in whatever way they want.…The Scrum master and product owner…are not even required to attend the daily Scrum.…Many Scrum teams assume…that using software tools makes them agile.…Tools assist in the process,…but just using tools is not enough.…Agility is a mindset…and tools cannot make a team agile…if the mindset is missing.…Another common myth is that agile teams do not document.…
This myth owes its origin to an incorrect interpretation…of the Agile Manifesto.…
