There is such a thing as adhering too much to the guide. You may think that implementing, to the letter, the words of wisdom put forth by the creators of Scrum would be a good thing - but it’s not. Scrum is a framework that is barely sufficient and, in their own words, “empirical”. You must iteratively adapt your processes as you go forward, or else you’ll always be stuck at Shu, your training wheels won’t come off for Ha, and you definitely won’t reach the transcendence of Ri.
Natoma Consulting co-founder and principal consultant Malik Graves-Pryor will be speaking at the NYC Large Scale Scrum (LeSS) meetup to share and discuss our LeSS case study, "Web and Mobile Applications Company Agile Transformation".
