I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work. – Thomas A. Edison
Empiricism is work that is fact, experience and evidence based. It is usually implemented in a Scrum process where progress is based on observations of reality, and not fictitious plans. It also places a large emphasis on the mindset and shifts in culture to achieve business and organizational agility.
The three pillars of Empiricism in Scrum are : Transparency, Inspection and Adaptation. They result in faster time to market, more predictable delivery, increased customer responsiveness and managing priorities. Alongside improved capabilities of risk management.
