Agile Abuse – Scenario 4
Paula – Customer, Amy – Manager
Paula – Amy, you mentioned that Agile is supposed to be faster. Why don’t you speed up the work with the same team? Sprint velocity is supposed to be must faster sprint after sprint and the speed of work should constantly increase.
Amy – Too much of speed can affect the quality of work. Agile promotes sustainable development. In a long run, the overall benefit with respect to quantity or quality is going to be more in most circumstances while the sprint can run with a pace and all you can expect is little improvement sprint after sprint.
Paula – OK. Got it.
Challenge – ‘Sprinting’ means running super-fast.
