Meanwhile, here's what's most important in my opinion:
Envision two lines, pointing upward from zero.
The upper line is labelled Scrum Teams.
The lower line is labelled Effective Scrum Teams.
The upper line's right end is at height Y.
The lower line's right end is at height Y/4.
The shape or absolute height of the lines is not as important a fact
as that there are two, and that effectiveness lags substantially.
I'm giving the best advice I have. You get to decide whether it's true for you.

mistakenly think that their current defect rate is somehow provided
by Nature, raining defects into the code, and that the main thing to
do is to have a really good database to keep track of them.
Scrum will work, if you do it, and if you have infinite time. It
works best if you have lots of other skills to bring to bear on the
impediments. But the main thing is to recognize impediments and work
to resolve them. Everything else is just efficiency.
Note that the difference between QuickSort and a bubble sort is also
"just efficiency". However, it makes the difference between getting
your data sorted now, and getting it sorted someday. Similarly with
knowing how to test and such ...
