This article discusses whether or not to follow Scrum strictly. (suggesting not to). Any thoughts?

http://blog.sandglaz.com/when-scrum-is-not-agile/
Do you work in a Scrum team and think scrum sucks? Well, chances are you’re right – your scrum sucks.

This is spot on. Agile is about responding to change and adapting. The best sign of a former PMP snake oil salesman Agile Coach is an insistence on following Scrum ceremonies religiously. The key to everything is the retrospective (or however your team feeds back), and following up points raised. By the time you become truly AGILE your process will have moved far on from pure scrum into what works best for you. A true agile team could do a waterfall process and still deliver, it's the mindset that matters.

We work with Scrum as it's a good starting point and embodies the principles and manifesto but it isn't a universal panecea, if it were there would be no need for kanban/SAFe/Less or Lean, your situation is unique so you find a start and then adapt and refine, using continuous improvement.

Is too much choice in your task list a good thing? #tasklist
It seems like a simple matter of logic that having more choices is better than having fewer choices. Additional options allow more people to find the something that suits them perfectly, and anyone who doesn’t care about additional choices can simply ignore them. Because this logic seems obvious, the studies contradicting it have attracted a [...]

Want to be the world's greatest product owner? Here's what we found it takes:
http://blog.sandglaz.com/the-6-characteristics-of-an-effective-product-owner/ #scrum
