Cool perspective. Can you elaborate on "Methodologies should be lead by culture, not otherwise"?

Hi Abe!

I see methodologies as patterns, and they are really useful but they are usually misunderstood and can lead to wrong practices. For example, Scrum is actually good, but the usage of Scrum without understanding the principles leads to micromanagement and burn-out of teams.

I personally seen working better to share a common understanding of what principles should the team follow, probably those principles can be chosen by the own team, based on the organization guidelines. Later, the team can decide the methodology and adapt it to their needs (there are workshops, like Roles and Expectations: funretrospectives.com/role-expecta... and an inception).

What do you think?
