Agile Software Development

Are you sure you want to be agile?

Many organisations do not actually want or need agility. But by claiming to be agile and, at the same time, practicing an agile “cargo cult”, they harm themselves and the idea of agility in general. Instead of sticking to a broken wanna-be culture, they should look into traditional methods, which may be better suited for their situation.

Be honest. Be bold. Embrace the waterfall.
