Comment Not lazy devs, just unrealistic deadlines (Score 5, Insightful) 491

In my experience, agile is not about lazy developers not wanting to do the boring work, it's about the business owners and project managers wanting to force unrealistic deadlines on projects such that there is no time for those tasks because of the tight deadlines and quick release cycles. It is rare that they allow the principle that you deliver what you can by the release date, but rather they want everything they asked for and the devs need to make it happen.

I have a theory that it's impossible to prove anything, but I can't prove it.
