Re: [ljc] "I've never been a true believer in the Agile method"

Because I want facts, not opinions.  I certainly don't want beliefs.  Only placebo's require belief.  "Belief" is what I object to, not "Agile."

Because In the beginning it was about uncovering better ways of developing software.  Now I have come to associate the "Agile" approach with dogma and mantra.  Many keep insisting that the best way to develop software has already been uncovered.  I think we still have a long way to go.

Because, to paraphrase Wilde, whenever everybody agrees with something I always feel it must be wrong.

Just for curiosity, why do you believe in the Agile method?
