Agile and Scrum? Better think again.
I attended a conference featuring Ken Schwaber in May where in answer to my question he offered that most Scrum projects and implementations fail. Back in 2008 he was more explicit in an interview saying 75% fail. Yes, 75% fail:
“I estimate that 75% of those organizations using Scrum will not succeed in getting the benefits that they hope for from it.”–Ken Schwaber
Coming from the co-developer of Scrum and a signator of Agile, that’s a rather damning statement.
