Re: Agile fine until it hits the real world?

Yeah agree - powerless (and probably 95% absent) product owner makes a huge difference.

To all the waterfallists: you'd be surprised how similar Agile and Waterfall are in achieving results, if both are done properly. The main difference is Agile will deliver what you need now, whereas Waterfall will deliver what you thought you needed two years ago, and now have to lawyer up to argue about what features have or haven't been delivered.
