Abusing Agile – Part 1

Disclaimer – There is no intention to hurt anybody. The idea is to pass the learning and a MESSAGE. I have seen Agile getting abused and many a times it is visible to rest of the world except the one who is responsible for it. Click on each scenario to get more details.

Scenario 1 – I leave very early because I finish my work and I pick very less because this is all I can do.

Scenario 2  – I didn’t do anything hence pairing was a saver although it was knowledge transition.

Scenario 3 – A standup cannot be a meeting.

Scenario 4 – ‘Sprinting’ means running super-fast.

Scenario 5 – It is perfectly alright to play with estimation at any point in time.  

Scenario 6 – Story point is not about time, not even a range.

Scenario 7 – We will unearth acceptance criteria and requirements for a given story as we continue with development. Writing one liner description for a story should be fine and we will keep looking at it while work in progress during the sprint.
