Foundation of Scrum - Empiricism
As we learned last week, Scrum combines four formal events for inspection and adaptation within a containing event, the Sprint. These events work because they implement the empirical Scrum pillars of Transparency, Inspection, and Adaptation.
Empirical? What's that?
According to the Oxford Dictionary empirical means "Based on, concerned with, or verifiable by observation or experience rather than theory or pure logic."
Empiricism asserts that knowledge comes from experience and making decisions based on what is observed.
So if we want to improve how we make software, we need knowledge about our processes of software development. We need to experience it and observe it before we have the data to work with.
So if we're not completely honest (transparency) about the data and/or experience, the observation (inspection) and new direction (adaptation) are skewed.
Are the three pillars of Transparency, Inspection, and Adaptation being used by your team? Why or why not?
