The Herding of Cats: A Scrum Master's Journey to Deliver Value
Have you ever seen a Scrum Master trying to wrangle a bunch of developers to create value at the end of a sprint? It's like herding cats on roller skates. They're all over the place, pushing and shoving each other to get to the finish line. And you know what they say - 'value postponed is value denied'. But these developers, they're like, 'Nah, let's just wait until the last minute and then throw something together.' It's like watching a bunch of procrastinators at a group project in college.
But the Scrum Master, bless their heart, they keep pushing and prodding and encouraging those developers to create value. They're like a drill sergeant on a mission to deliver value. 'Come on, team, you can do it! You're so close to the finish line!' And the developers, they're like, 'Just give us five more minutes, we'll deliver value then.'
But that five minutes turns into ten, and then an hour, and then the next thing you know, it's the next sprint and they're starting all over again. But hey, at least the Scrum Master got a good workout in trying to herd those cats.
