@dparnas and Twan van den Broek got together to discuss the issues behind why developers may or may not hate Agile and Scrum.
“Lazy developers cannot hide specific problems for weeks. Every day you have to explain your progress.”
“Lazy developers hate Scrum because they have to report progress everyday.”
“It’s really a team effort, the team has the responsibility to deliver together.”
“Lazy developer are often the ones that now have to show what they’ve been hiding before from a customer.”
“In sum we do believe lazy developers hate Scrum and Agile because they have to change, they have to be much more visible to what they are doing and cannot hide.”
It sounds to me that it’s not that developers hate Scrum… but rather lazy developers hate Scrum… and lazy developers don’t like to be transparent about what they are working on…
Are they really lazy? Or are they just in self-preservation mode…
