Welcome back to yet another week at www.implementingscrum.com.
[After you read this you may want to check out an updated posting to this cartoon at: https://www.implementingscrum.com/2012/01/04/scrummasters-feel-like-giving-up-sometimes/]
A few weeks ago had someone in a class explain this. He was trained as an Antropologist — not a software developer.
Interesting dude. Really.
Let’s say your current organizational system is like a river flowing down stream.
How rough varies.
Scrum for example (funny how that gets worked into this conversation, eh?).
Pretend that change is a boat (or canoe, as drawn!).
Insert a Chicken and Pig for some humor (smile).
Following along with me?
What happens when you stop paddling?
The river flushes you back down stream.
That’s the gist.
Does this apply in your current situation?
If you are about to just embark on this journey, remember to always keep paddling!
Stop paddling and you have made a choice to give it up — and make room for something else to take its place.
Gotta run! Please send comments, questions, criticisms, ideas, or whatever here.
You can also enter The Scrum Community to discuss this entry and other Scrum topics. Thank you!
