Saad Ali Jan reminds us why studying Agile is not the same as applying Agile

We can read all the books, watch all the presentations, even listen to all the podcasts about Agile, but applying Agile is a very different business than learning about it. Saad Ali tells the story one of his first jobs as Scrum Master and how he faced the fact that the problems we face as Scrum Masters are quite different from what we study in school. No matter how much we study.
