"In [Giles Bowkett's] words, in it's best case scenario, Scrum's a dog-and-pony show. But that best case scenario is rare. In the much more common case, Scrum covers up the inability to recruit (or even recognize) engineering talent, which is currently one of the most valuable things in the world, with a process for managing engineers as if they were cogs in a machine, all of equal value."I'm sure there are places out there using Scrum successfully, but I have never seen them. It seems to be a methodology using the trappings of Agile to hide that it actually comes from the fake world of scientific management. In that world, to achieve improvement, you must have The Metrics. The Metrics govern all processes. It doesn't matter if something is actually understood, it only matters that it is being Measured, and that the Measurement be Tracked.
