Yes, I hesitate to continue writing on agile and agile methods as most is said elsewhere. Yet I have to claim that many people still don’t get the core concepts and values as crisp and sharp as needed.
It is also to be repeated again: It is not a method for developers or tech teams, it is a business method to create or adopt services and increase value for customers – and leadership needs drive the mind sets needed.
If agile don’t work out for you, it is an alarm sign on the healthiness of your organisation. I recommend you to analyse the root causes – not for the sake to implement agile, as it is still just a methodology – but for the sake to understand the issues of your organisation that are present independent on any method applied.
