This is exactly what Agile succeeds in. This story is going to be an 8 point story? But Jim said he could get it done in 2.

Have a safety concern? The product owner doesn't think it's a priority.




What you describe sounds like Scrum done very poorly, not "Agile" in general.

If you treat individual ticket SP values as measures of time, you've already completely lost the point of everything.


Does Boeing use agile when deciding things like safety features on planes?

if not, is this relevant to the story?

Have I seen agile/scrum used to cut corners on and dismiss engineering concerns? Absolutely.
