An anti pattern is a frequently used, but largely ineffective solution to a problem. The term was originally used to refer to a pattern gone wrong. As Scrum practitioners, we all know that Scrum has events, artifacts, roles and rules. If the core principles, foundation ideas or the agile manifesto is ‘tweaked’ hoping they would provide benefits because teams are not seeing immediate results, this may result in an anti pattern. This in turn may become an ineffective solution to a problem.
