Scrum won’t fix any of your problems!

Ahhh, it’s out! Scrum won’t fix your problems. Ok, in some chaotic situations it will bring order into the game (like the speaker in the british House of Commons :)). But everything else it will only show you very transparent. You will have to find the best ways to solve your customer problems and yours. You are in charge to fix your broken culture, the conflicts in and between your teams.

Scrum only gives a frame. You remember how the Scrum Guide starts with “Scrum is a framework for…“. And that’s it. A framework giving you the chance to work with consistency and even more important: transparency. If you do it right, you will end up with an endless stream of problems to solve. Scrum shows them unforgiving. You will have to talk frequently about them. And it divides the problems into “how you work”, “what you achieved (or not)” and “what your next goals are”.

Conclusion

A huge pro of Scrum is the big transparency it brings to your organisation. It helps to develop every part of your process in a human centric manner. And on top it is easy to explain!

Hard thing is, that culture is hard to change. There can be resistance. Unaware values can make things even harder. Often you see high expectations and when people realize not everything will end up in well in a wink, they are disappointed.

What are your experiences with Scrum and the expectations at it? What disappointments did you saw? Which resistance did you realized and how did you got over it? Leave a comment and let the world know!

As always thanks for reading and sharing! I hope you liked it!
