Re: Agile doesn't work

Because it allows cock ups like the scheme this article is about and the reason why the emperor has been called out for having no clothes.

I have seen many areas where secure thinking is overruled in the name of delivery leaving the support function to pick up the pieces. With decent design and control this situation is avoidable, but in the interests of cost reduction this seems to go by the wayside. Agile allows people to forget tasks while they move (or are moved) onto other tasks and more glory.

It's not a personal thing as waterfall can either be like a trickle from the meltwater that is management or can result in a whirlpool that everyone gets sucked into.
