What creates Zombie Scrum? One clear theme we — and many others — have found is that people use the Scrum Framework for the wrong reasons. When you ask people in a Zombie Scrum organization what they are hoping to get out of Scrum, you’ll hear things like “more speed”, “more brains”, “more output” and “more efficiency”. That’s very different from the actual meaning of the word “agile”. It’s also very different from what the Scrum Framework is designed for. Where does this contradiction come from?

In this episode, which is an excerpt from our book "The Zombie Scrum Survival Guide", we explore how the "Efficiency Mindset" that is prevalent in so many organizations can easy mess-up your work with the Scrum Framework.
