Einstein was a Scrum pioneer.
Look at his quotes and see how they all included messages from the Agile Manifesto or Scrum process & philosophy
“I never teach my pupils. I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn.”
This quote relates to self-managed teams and empowered individuals. People tend to learn more when they discover things themselves instead of being dictated on how to do or interpret something.
And a self managed team is one of the cornerstones of the Scrum framework. In more traditional environments there is usually a clear chain of command in which:
- Top management defines the Why & What (mission, objectives)
- The middle management then decides Who of their team will do it and by When it will be ready. (projects, tasks)
- Typically middle management also tells their team How to do it; or corporate rules prescribe How things should be done (guidelines, procedures)
