Beaten Team Syndrome

You may have noticed that my blog has moved to the Practical Agile website.

So I have been importing a few old posts, and just posted a new one today. Click to read my latest post Beaten Team Syndrome –

What is it about? Have you seen, or maybe experienced yourself, a team that was taking more and more and more scope, when clearly it will be impossible to them to deliver?

As always, please comment – I am always happy to engage in discussion.
