I spent much of the last 3 years working as a Scrum Master/Developer. I volunteered to be the Scrum Master which is scary in itself.
The strength or weakness of the "AGILE" Process is determined by how well the PO and SM and TL's do their jobs in concert with the other members of the team. Luckily, the people I was working with worked to accept the process and it worked out fairly well.
The meetings were first thing in the mornings so it wouldn't disrupt the flow of the developers or BA's. I would say 95% of the meetings were 15 minutes or less once everyone got into the flow of things. Some people complained (to be expected) but carried on. The were a number of times where people or resources were redirected based upon information provided at these meetings was surprising.
Is AGILE for everyone? No. Does it work? Yes
As they say , your mileage will vary....

Straw Poll

When thinking about your job, how important is the option to work from home?
Some bosses are casual about where you work, and some, naming no names, will insist you're in the office, always. What are your thoughts?
