In my experience it halves productivity and doubles staff turnover and results in a team comprised exclusively of dictators and submissives. Making people stand for extended periods of time, or a similar uncomfortable physical posture, is known as a ‘stress position’ and is considered to be torture under International Law. Moreover, any methodology that involves somebody being called ‘the Master’ belongs in the 18th Century. I imagine there will be many employment tribunals around scrum in the near future.
