AGILE/SCRUM is literally the homeopathy of the developers community. It is PLACEBO!
Everyone is copying from everyone else because if the other 10 companies does it, then it must be good.
It is nothing more than: "10 steps successful millionaires do to become successful.
Now buy this course for only $1000"
The only people getting wealthy rich are the course teachers. Or in this case the SCRUM teachers that suck lots of money from courses for something that simply works as PLACEBO.
How can you test this?
- Take one team that works in SCRUM mode.
- Take one good developer and let him work alone.
Give both teams the exact same development job.
That one good developer guy will tap-dance around your SCRUM team and still have time to spare. And the bonus part is that the one developer will even have code that even a guy from school can understand because it is not abstracted to almost useless to understand code.
It is shocking to see how good developers are wasting productivity time on this mindless AGILE/SCRUM methodology that is push like a religion.
