In scrum software development, there are all these ridiculous special phrases like “story points”, “burn down”, etc. Specialized phrases always annoyed me. Why can’t you just speak in plain English? Why do they have to invent these silly terms? Is it just to protect the trademark of the process inventor? It’s kind of like Bananagrams…great (and stressful) word game, but instead of “next” you say “peel” and “bananas” instead of “done”.
