Re: [ljc] University vs Real Life Industry Work

The success or failure of an Agile methodology in delivering projects is largely due to how it's been used in context. The organisational culture must lends itself to the agile framework in practise and not in words. There are various agile techniques of course and amongst them I  am more familiar with Scrum; which works well most of time especially when it is DONE properly.

First, there is absolutely  NO role for a project manager in Scrum and the scrum team velocity determines the level ( if you like quantity) of deliverables within a sprint and not a project manager that may not have written a line of code in his career. Besides, an hour stand up meeting is not just acceptable. 15 minutes that's it, any other discussion should be addressed in a discussion with the Scrum Master at another time. I do this over coffee. Also, when you start assigning time to coding task, you are already doing scrum wrongly.
