Good points! Here's another. Agile as a power play. Agile approaches are often implemented so the developers can take more control -- it's the chickens and pigs metaphor. Adopt agile development, stop committing to deadlines, and life will be simpler. Let me know how that works out for you!

Hi Vin,

OK, so if I understand correctly, agile as a way to get more developer power so they can then avoid accountability, deadlines, etc. Yes, I can see how that would work, like inventing your own religion so you can then do what you like. It is funny, but the push for agile adoption has now swung from the developers to the CIO’s and management. In the last VersioOne Agile Survey it seems the switch to agile is now usually driven by directors and not the developers as it once was. I like your point though, switch to agile so you can make the rules and avoid the obligations that are burdensome.

Thanks for sharing, regards
