Lazy developers hate agile and scrum discussion at #sapphirenow
During the #sapphirenow key note, CO-CEO of SAP Jim Hagemann Snabe said that he saw no drawbacks of introducing scrum to parts of SAP internal development and the challenge now was to scale it to the entire company.
I thought this was a somewhat strange statement, as in my experience 98% of developers love scrum and the rest fear it because of the transparency.
I then got two more interesting replies from twitter, one from @webtonull stating the rest fear it because it is experienced as surveilance (meaning your not really doing it as intended). The other was from @cvitan who came up with the catch-line “lazy developers hate scrum”.
Myself and Twan van den Broek, who has experience from running scrum in SAP projects (see his presentation on the topic), figured out we’d do a short video to share with the world and the SAP Community. This video should be shown below; if not go here . I’ve also added it as a podcast to this post
