Friday's Digest #5 [Charts, Scrum Criticism]

  • New ASP.NET Charting Control. Looks good, but I prefer flash charts.
  • Trashing Scrum or Reflecting Reality? David J. Anderson thinks that Scrum in it’s current state is almost opposite to agile development “My observation from the outside is that the Scrum community reflects the antithesis of our agile values. It is run from the top. The message is strictly controlled. Dissent is not permitted. It resembles a cult of personality and appears to be the very definition of command’n’control in its execution”.
  • Is Scrum Failing Us? Alan Shalloway does not have such extreme feeling, but believe that there are many misunderstanding in Scrum “I want to mention some misunderstandings I have seen many people in the industry have and how we, as practitioners, can get beyond them. I have also included a few things many Scrum trainers believe that I don’t agree with”.
