Working at an agency it is often the case that our clients have heard and are enthusiastic about Scrum/Agile, but struggle to move away from what they have been doing before.
One of the biggest problems is that because the business doesn’t understanding everyone’s responsibilities in this ‘new’ Scrum framework, the PO (sometimes plural if you don’t nip that one in the bud), stakeholders and ex-project managers all revert to old, default, behaviours rather then seek to understand their role better. This leads to confusion, mis-communication, pressure, ]over-commitment and conflict. For more info see this blog post about over-commitment by James Scrimmers.
