What is relational perfection? Just ask the Hollywood actor and his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith
Ah, what comfort there is to be taken from the companionship of fellow sufferers afflicted by bilge, blather and eyewash. So all praise to my angst-ridden correspondent Mike J Eslea, who sent me the following after learning of a new appointment in his company: “The scrum master help [sic] to keep the team accountable to their commitments to the business and also remove [sic again] any roadblocks that might impede the team’s productivity. They met [sic once more] with the team on a regular basis to review work and deliverables, most often in a weekly cadence.” Mike suggests that “weekly cadence” probably means “once a week” and I suspect he’s right.
But there’s more. “No one (not even the Scrum Master) tells the Development Team how to turn Product Backlog into Increments of potentially releasable functionality!” He suggests reading this out loud in the voice of Bob Hoskins in The Long Good Friday. It works.
