You do Scrum, but…
Scrum – are you Serious?
A series to address the malpractices of Scrum
We, Sjoerd Nijland and Willem-Jan Ageling, recently started Serious Scrum here on Medium. Our aim is to tackle serious issues with Scrum, like anti-patterns, myths, misconceptions, outdated notions and ignorant management. We wish to show the potential of Scrum.
Most of our articles are part of a series. We are running two series up to now:
- A Kick in the ScrumBut
Helping teams who don’t take full advantage of the Scrum Guide.
- Road to PSM III
Deep-diving into the wonderful world of Scrum.
We are now starting a third one:
- Are you serious?
The purpose of the series is to address misinterpretations of Scrum. It is aiming to help people that mean well with Scrum, but struggle to get the hang of it.
There are many items that we aim to address under this title. We have already created two stories:
- Are you looking for a Scrum Master? Not according to your job description!
- You waited for the Daily Scrum to report an impediment
More will follow. We have a lot of inspiration to make this a great series.
