Thank you for your article!
Why would I be upset by this? My mission has been to improve the profession of software development. I have never deviated from it, including the management of software development and the organizations that benefit from the value. I feel that our improvement is become more critical as time passes.
I welcome and cherish those that also work towards this goal. I have always had problems with organizations and people that put the goal second and making money from it first.

I'd just like to see that data that Bjork is alluding to about Kanban being a more mature concept. There are synergistic movements that can (and do) occur over time between Scrum and Kanban. But continuous flow isn't just a sign of maturity in a team, but in the place in the lifecycle of a "product" (be it what have you), regardless of whether it's "boxed" or something that's continuously updated or refined as time goes by?
The reason some say "Scrum doesn't work in the boardroom" may have more to do with how CxO's are trained to think, and the "disruptive" and expository nature of highlighting areas of failure (primarily those dealing with Accountability). Any tooling that sheds light on any "questionable practices" is bound to get smacked with skepticism, and derision.
So....like Clara Peller said back in the 80's, about beef....Where's the data, Bjork? Publish it.
