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 times it is visible to the 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 the acceptance criteria and requirements for a given story as we continue with development. Writing a one-liner description for a story should be fine and we will keep looking at it while working in progress during the sprint.
