“The real world was a a rude awakening and crushed my spirit immensely.”
Growing up as a Gen Xer, my first job out of college in the mid ’90s was the exact opposite of teamwork and collaboration. It was a company based on hierarchy, tradition, and never questioning anything. It was this tribulation that made me a passionate believer in Scrum.
When I graduated from college and landed my first “real job,” I expected to be empowered, to make a difference, and to contribute to the greater good of the company. The real world was a a rude awakening and crushed my spirit immensely.
