Scrum Master Toolbox Podcast: Agile Storytelling From the Trenches: BONUS: The Agile Wire Hosts Interview Vasco Duarte on #NoEstimates


It is said that people should focus on the final objective of releasing something of value to a customer and stop raising principles, like those of agile methods, as religion.

— what I remember of what Vasco Duarte says

It is said that those method provides useful tools (like those found in scrum) that one can pick to get what per need to get the job done.

According to Vasco Duarte, a team should be focused on one single goal. According to him, then the collaboration will spontaneously emerge and people will be engaged. He uses the metaphor of a collaborative sport, where a teammate suddenly stops playing. Players would not be able to play with focus if they know that sometime their teammates won’t be committed anymore.
