Agile Abuse – Scenario 4 – Sprinting means running super fast

 

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 improve sprint after sprint and the speed of work should constantly increase.

Amy – Too much speed can affect the quality of work. Agile promotes sustainable development. In a long run, the overall benefit with respect to quality is going to be more compare to quantity in most circumstances while the sprint can run with a pace and all you can expect is better quality sprint after sprint.  100% utilization is an economic disaster.

Paula – OK. Got it.

Challenge – ‘Sprinting’ means running super-fast.

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