Topic: Agile In Name Only


For good or ill, "Agile" has become the new normal. What began as a lightweight collection of common sense practices squaring off against the overstructured, top-heavy waterfall has now established itself as the new heir to the development throne.

Or has it?

The Agile we most often hear about ... heck, the Agile many of us practice is a far cry from the pure, principle-driven practices that original signers of the Agile Manifesto put their names to. Is Agile even agile anymore? Should it be? Must it be?

What defines Agile? Are we practicing what we preach? How much is too much when compromise begins? When you proudly hang the wreath of Agility around your team's it decoration with meaning, or is it a boat anchor poised to drown them in expectations and misconceptions.

What is it going to take to fix this?
