Discussion on: Scrum Got 3 People Fired From A Software Project!

This is really useful and interesting Jayme. Most of your stories tell what has gone bad, or terrible, during development.

Since you're a healthy software developer, do you have any stories to tell where things went butter smooth and what were the keys to success? Would be really interesting.

Never goes buttery smooth. That’s what being a Healthy Software Developer (at least how I’m presenting it) is:

Accepting limitations of your project, standing up for yourself, having a healthy work/life balance, and not being ignorant of the current propaganda around agile coaching.

It’s really more about thriving the best you can in a messy environment!

P.S. I try to do teaching videos Tuesday and Project stories Friday.

The teaching videos share things I’ve found to work - but as evidenced by the project stories they never eliminate the unpredictability of the human factor!
