Why Agile Is Failing?
ABSTRACT: Even before the signing of the Agile manifesto, Agile methodologies have offered tremendous benefits, both to organizations and the individuals who comprise those organizations. Sustainable pace coupled with hyper velocities, self-managing teams with high levels of autonomy, and close interaction with business to improve focus on customer value should have led to a complete redefinition of the development environment. Yet, as more and more organizations embrace ‘Agile’, are we really seeing the full benefits we should be?
