One apology, sort of. Scrum was built to help teams increase
productivity by 5x to 10x. In discussion of the algorithm I assumed a
2x productivity gain in one year. Wanted to be conservative (low,
easily attained...although not universally attained).
My experience is if you talk about what really can be achieved, people
feel it is unrealistic. This is a dilemma we should talk about more.
And get more data on, so it becomes more a factual discussion than an
argument of opinions. (We as a community are of course continuing to
collect more and more data already.)
