Where's the criticism?
Why doesn't this article approach any of the criticism of the methodology?
Ex: the (somewhat common) criticism that this methodology is usually unintentionally analyzed as infallible: When a scrum project succeeds it is usually regarded a a proof of scrum's success; When a scrum project fails the failure is usually attributed to the people or to only an incomplete implementation of scrum (cherry-picked tips and bits) or to a too-strict implementation of scrum (blindly following scrum without adapting to circumstances).
- Two points.
- 1. We are strongly discouraged from including separate criticism sections, as this is more likely to lead to a polarisation of views and is not encyclopedic. It is far better to distribute alternate views for balance in the right context. For example, if there is a criticism on retrospectives, this is best included in the section on retrospectives. There is some of this, but if you want to add the one you included above, and can provide references, then please go ahead and add it in an appropriate spot.
- 2. There is also a section on the limitations of Scrum.
- It would be easy enough to merge the criticism into the article. There are several guidelines that suggest not having one. It should be as well-sourced to reliable sources as the rest of the content in the article. Walter Görlitz (talk) 19:18, 17 January 2018 (UTC)
