Exercises To Address Your Organization's 'Scrum….But'


The Scrum guide states that “scrum is lightweight, simple to understand and difficult to master’. This difficulty in applying Agile development best practices is often reflected in a practice known as ‘ScrumBut’ (We use Scrum, but… [insert workaround]). In this discussion we identify common reasons why organizations participate in this behavior. We will also discuss tools your organization can use to address this practice and strategies to prevent it from occurring in the future.
