Some of us, have now lived more than a decade with Agile methods. The revolution came in with a great promise and we were attracted because we saw in it an approach which if nothing else wouldn't make us toil for 1-2 years before we realised there was little to no business value in what we were burning the night oil and charging our clients for. When we explored the methods we found it to be a lot more then just a risk reducing technique and here we are living and breathing among continuous and iterative delivery models.
Looking back however, we find we have become iterative for sure and there is a definite sense of cadence. But the real promise - increased business value with reduced concept to cash lead times still seems elusive. A sense of dogma has crept in, even in the Agile ceremonies. They happen, but there is little soul. If you look around team members are still burning out; we have avoided the famous waterfall death march but it is still a very soul-less stride. And organisations, do not feel that they have reaped all the benefits which were promised. There is just a handful of companies who seem to be living the values and are really nimble in the market place. What went wrong?
