“imagine that your mother-in-law believed her daughter could do better… and then imagine that she moved in with you… that’s what Scrum is like”
Think about it…
Assuming we shouldn’t aim to completely avoid all errors in software development (since this is an inherent part of any human creation) but rather to spot them as quickly as possible before they become real problems.
And… since Scrum is indeed a very good “tool” to bring the problems in-your-face without any mercy in a daily manner.
So without even getting into the continuous improvement possibilities with mother-in-laws, I really liked the Mother-In-Law allegory :)
By the way, with great anticipation I have proudly joined the Haiku contest @ the famous Ktorium – Wish me luck! :)
