I rather have a race then “work rationing” in a sprint.\ \ I have been on teams where sprint tasks are assigned and locked into place during planning.  This occurred when the team only felt comfortable working on certain layers, and felt threatened by others doing work on “their” layer. \ \ So half way through a spring we had people idle with stories still left incomplete.  Would you call this fear of competition?\ \ #scrum{.ot-hashtag .bidi_isolate}\ #antipattern{.ot-hashtag .bidi_isolate}\ #softwaredevelopment{.ot-hashtag .bidi_isolate}
