Scrum issues: being agile isn't easy..

I do a lot of consulting work and because of this I see lots of different development processes at many companies. Some of them are good, but most of them are not. And this problem isn’t caused by lack of trying, but of lack of expertise. Most - if not all - software development departments I visit try to be “agile” by implementing scrum. But unlike what many people think, implementing scrum in an efficient way isn’t that easy. It takes time and effort on ALL levels of a company. If your clients, or IT department aren’t ready to do scrum, then you won’t succeed either. You could of course, implement some of the facets of scrum, but scrum - it is not.
