Scrum Guide and Agile Manifesto emphasize some of the following:
- Teams are cross-functional and have skills to create a Done increment.
- People are to be trusted
- Work is to be at a sustainable pace
- Entire organization must respect Product Owners decisions
My question is are there any guides, resources, whitepapers on the transition from a non-Scrum to Scrum environment when certain players can not be trusted, are not skilled enough to be on a team, do not want to give up control of their fiefdom (middle manager), have no respect for lower ranked workers?
Quite a bit of Scrum seems naive. I am attempting to read and analyze how to handle transitions when there are actors that can not be part of Scrum.
e.g. Director of QA who wants department resources kept off of Scrum teams. Or, during Scrum adoption, Director of QA position is discovered is not needed. I have not read anything that deals with this scenario, or similar scenarios
