Scrum Got 3 People Fired From A Software Project!

By Jayme Edwards, Software Development Coach

Over my career I've seen many software projects fail spectacularly due to political infighting between team members. Blame-shifting and improper application of scrum got people fired on this one! I prefer a simple definition of politics: when people tell each other what they want to hear instead of the truth. I'd like to share the story of a software project I worked on, where the client was a non-profit company with a big budget. They wanted to redesign a major application used to help struggling educational institutions. But the staff were inexperienced with agile. And multiple contractors on the project were fighting. In this episode, I share how inexperience with software development processes can actually get people fired. Especially when there's politics.
