Correct Answer: Accrued technical debt from putting off quality standards.
Explanation:The top 12 causes of agile failure (failure modes) according to Aaron Sanders: 1. A checkbook commitment doesn’t automatically cause organizational change or support. 2. Culture doesn’t support change. 3. Culture does not have retrospectives or performs them poorly. 4. Standards and quality are lost in a race to project closing. 5. Lack of collaboration in planning. 6. None or too many Product Owners. 7. Poor project leadership or scrum master that doesn’t place trust in the team and allow it to be self-organizing and self-disciplined. 8. No on-site agile promoter or coach. 9. Lack of a well built, high-performance team. 10. Accrued technical debt if strict testing standards are not upheld. 11. Culture maintains traditional performance appraisals where individuals are honored and the team aspect is lost. 12. A reversion to the traditional or ‘old-way’ of doing business occurs because change is hard. [Coaching Agile Teams. Lyssa Adkins.] [Knowledge and Skills: Level 3]
