Re: [scrumdevelopment] Re: Rotten apple in Scrum team - NOT
- I'm highly troubled by the used metaphor of a "rotten apple". It
implies that the problem lies inside the employee, whereby it is
almost certainly a management problem.
What about a cherry bud, that just needs the right amount of water and
sun to blossom?
What if he is a catalysator?
Or perhaps he really is in the wrong job - as my mom likes to say:
"there are no weeds, only herbs in the wrong place".
I strongly suggest that as the first step to solve your problem, you
intentionally stop using language that suggest that *he* is the
problem. He probably is just doing his best, with the information and
capabilities at his hand.
