Fragile Agile

Now What?

Inspired, and ready to launch, teachers embarked in the task of implementing scrum in their classrooms. As they reached each hurdle from confused students asking questions they could not answer, to the trying task of fitting all state standards onto one scrum board, teachers soon realized that they could not teach, what they themselves did not know. So we were at this point of no return. What we really had learned from our introduction with scrum is that trying to bridge two different worlds and two different languages, and seemingly, two very different ideations are HARD; we needed more information, more buy-in, more resources, and more coffee.
