Five years of Flaccid Scrum

Five years ago, I wrote this post to highlight a particular problem we’d been seeing with project teams using Scrum but neglecting the technical practices you need for successful software development. I’m reposting it now as the problem is still with us, indeed it seems more common as Scrum and agile has become more popular. My advice still stands - ensure you take technical practices seriously when introducing Scrum (or indeed any agile approach).
