The Theory of the Dead Horse in Scrum

The art of knowing when to dismount.

There is a delicate balance between agility and commitment to reaching goals.

Commitment can lead to rigidity when the commitment is set to ‘the plan’ or ‘the destination’, instead of ‘the goal’. Alternatively, one may manoeuvre flexibly past various destinations, without ever achieving (or even setting) goals. One might, with dedication and commitment, try out ever new ways without getting anywhere.
