Fake reporting is endemic in dysfunctional Scrum shops. Here are some examples:
- “My meeting ran late so I burned an hour off the memory pooling story.”
- “The boss didn’t want to sign off on DevOps integration. I just rolled it into the story about dropdowns on the UI because it has too many hours anyway and called it “refactoring.”
- Using “defect bucket” as a recurring Sprint Backlog story. Seriously!
- You can’t submit your time sheet to get paid without assigning all your time to an assigned task.
