Abstract/Description

Anti-patterns are something that looks like a good idea, but which backfires badly when applied. Many organizations and teams fall into the trap of these anti-patterns, becoming stuck without ever realizing it. Frequently, this is due to a dogmatic understanding of what is right and wrong about Scrum and agile development. The first step to getting unstuck is to be able to detect these “sins.” The presentation exposes teams to these common pitfalls and then also provide a vision for a virtuous path to take them to the Promised Land.
