A colleague from my team started playing golf lately. Totally unexpectedly for me, I found out that these days equipment is not expensive any more and you do not need to be a club member. Since playing golf alone is not as much fun as playing together and having some competition, my colleague persuaded me to give it a try. Surprise, surprise; hitting the ball wasn’t that easy as you could imagine. You take a stick a.k.a. club, take your position and hit the ball with it. Club, ball, swing and … missed. Why? Because you need to practice the basics first. And playing golf is not about hitting the ball.
Playing golf is about perfecting your movements and hitting the ball is just a side effect. Isn’t it the same with practicing Scrum? It seems to be easy and the Scrum Guide has only little over twenty pages.
