Stop getting Bond Wrong
I first come across Agile on a large Government programme in a department that had never used Agile before, with suppliers that did not have a track record in Agile delivery and with a management team who did not understand Agile.
Needless to say the programme was not 'Universally' successful and was not a 'Credit' to the Agile methodology.
One of the key failings in the Programme was the mismanagement of the feedback loop and the lack of developers in the elaboration rooms. So elaborated designs disappeared off into the ether and we never knew how they fared.
Guess what, Agile run poorly give poor results.
Despite this faltering start for me, I believe Agile has its place in developing software and can see tremendous advantage in a well-run Agile project over Waterfall.
