Hello,

Does the book make references to failure use of Scrum?

Or failures of Scrum itself?

I feel still hype on Agile processes and see how we can remove overhead from it.

Regards,

Germán

As far as I can tell, there's no direct criticism of Scrum or any specific flavor of Agile in the book. The closest thing to criticism I found is mostly in Chapter 6 - Becoming Agile. Here's one example:

The Menagerie
It is easy to become confused by the vast numbers of Agile methods out there. My advice to you is to ignore the menagerie. In the end, regardless of which method you choose, you will wind up tuning and tweaking the process to fit your own needs. Thus, whether you begin with XP, Scrum, or any of the 5328 other Agile methods out there, you are going to wind up in the same place.

The strongest advice I can give you, however, is to adopt the full Circle of Life, including, and most especially, the technical practices. Far too many teams have adopted the outer business ring and have found themselves in the trap that Martin Fowler has labeled "Flaccid Scrum."[1]

But how did the elephant get like that? What did you do? I think all we can do now is read this tiny ad:
