To some an ‘Agile’ project means delivering value to a client or business more frequently than with other methodologies.  This can be achieved, with the right people, the right sponsorship within the right organization which is open to the concept.

Other times, trying to run a successful Agile project will look a lot more like this clip below from YouTube

Unfortunately, this clip likely is a better representation of reality than we’d care to admit.

Without the appropriate buy-in from all stakeholders in a project, and acknowledgement that the Agile approach doesn’t necessarily align with more stringent or rigid processes and frameworks, an Agile approach simply won’t work.

If you want to know why, perhaps it’s worth reading the Agile Manifesto itself.  Believe it or not, behind all the hype, there’s real method to the principals of the manifesto – many of which fly in the face of more rigid and stringent “quality” measures.
