Also Scrum...

Scrum is one of them things that works amazingly... but only if done really well.

Which means it's a terrible idea for a team organisation process.

You can't base your organisation on everyone performing the process to perfection all the time, you have to account for the fact that humans are performing it.

The best process is one that always produces the desired result regardless of the proficiency with which you execute it.

But do you think such a process exists? I feel that as soon as you add the human factor you also need to have a more human approach to team organization.

That's why it's best to focus on the Agile values instead of the processes.

Agree. I just feel that management tend to just throw it in to a project as the silver bullet and then wonder why all of these sprint planning meeting haven't gotten us to write more code.
