Lack of commitment

They say they want to be agile but in reality, they don’t! And they’ll even show you how they value more things like¬†predictability¬†and management over agility.

Sometimes we tend to overestimate our skills and use them in the wrong workplace. Lovely quote: “75% of people think they are in top 25% regardless of the topic!”
