Scrum Won’t Solve all the Problems

I get a lot of emails and messages whenever I publish a post, usually they connect with someone and they ask for more information in fixing problems and implementing them in their company.

  • Deadlines created by the company are often too unrealistic
  • There are members of the team which are very junior and too much is expected from them
  • Management don’t have the correct understanding of what Scrum is
  • The Product owners hold the development team accountable for the work but mid-way through the sprint increase the tasks
  • Product Owners or Management don’t give enough vision of show what is next in the pipeline

So Whats the Solution?

Unfortunately, not every problem can be fixed.

What if there is no Solution?

Sometimes we just have to accept that there is no fix, and accept that we cannot solve every problem.
