cynical: doing agile

Doing agile, a cynical definition

Robert Nickel - December 29, 2020  🏷️  Cynical Glossary | Agile

Doing agile: We do understand, that every team member is selfish, has poor communication skills and insufficient knowledge to solve an undefined problem that everyone pretends to understand in a predictable amount of time.

Therefore we are shifting the focus from believing the experts and their plans to learning, experimenting and repeatedly checking something useful gets done. And we do test-driven SAFe T-shaped daily pair programming Kanban with our Scrum PO.

P.S. We don’t do documentation, because we value working software more.
