Are you resistant to change? One of the reasons people attend Collaborative Leadership Team’s courses is to learn a different way of working. Many, however, spend the duration of the course trying to figure out how to make Agile and Scrum into exactly what they are doing currently. Angela Johnson, Certified Scrum Trainer and Agile Coach shares information she recently learned about why change is so hard.
In Certified ScrumMaster courses I find myself using the old saying “The Definition of Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result”. Agile approaches such as Scrum are completely different ways of doing work. Yet so many organizations today do not understand this.
In Certified Scrum Master Training (CSM), participants learn consistent and frequent delivery of value is an outcome when Agile Scrum is used as directed. Accuracy is not the goal, consistency is. Seeking accuracy is the same as trying to be ‘perfect’.
I do not intend to inflict harm on any kittens. Quite the contrary! I love the furry little creatures so much that I want to protect them. And I love Scrum. I really love it when people do good scrum. It is a results oriented process that can deliver business results much more quickly than traditional methods. If used as directed.
