Use Sprint 0 or Spikes to talk with these teams and find out what they have that can be leveraged based on your platform needs. Story 2: Rigid Rules Sometimes even the best of intentions can lead to very bad results. I saw an example of this on an Agile project where the architecture team put in place the quality gates for the client, which was on a LAMP stack. One of the mandates was that all PHP code had to have code coverage. That sounds great on the surface. But there were a few issues: (1) the web developers were not used to writing unit tests and (2) the code coverage number was a blanket number and did not take into account complexity, maintainability, or if the tests actually achieved anything.

Not surprisingly, after about a year in Production there was talk of doing major rewrites of portions of the application. As you might imagine, the morale of the developers was not that great after the practice of mandating Sprint commitments began. It is only empirical, but I would say productivity did go down. Every project has deadlines, and that is not going away. But if you tell teams that you are adopting Scrum and that they can have a better work-life balance by using velocity as a measure, then live up to that promise.
