Team: “Coach! Coach! This agile process stuff you sold us doesn’t work!
Coach: “Did you build working software regularly?
Team: “No, it was too difficult.
Coach: “Did you extend your definition of Done as far as you could?
Team: “No, it was too difficult.
Coach: “Did you make quality part of your process?
Team: “No, it was too difficult.
Coach: “Did you review what you were doing at all?
Team: “Yes, but we didn’t like what we discovered, so we ignored it.
Coach: “So are you absolutely sure it was the agile process that caused you to fail?
Team: “Oh yes, absolutely….
Coach: "<sigh>"
