In this video, Martin Fowler sums up my experience with agile throughout the years. In my experience, it ends up being tiny waterfalls that everyone calls sprints. The only reason upper management is willing to give it a go is because when they hear “sprint” think “go fast”.
Of course, it doesn’t have to be that way, and Fowler touches on some reasons to be optimistic about agile towards the end of his talk.
