Re: Has Agile become a dirty word?

I think you're right. Agile is typically a thinly disguised excuse not to bother with any design, documentation, thought, quality etc... I prefer to 'sell' people on picking the correct methodology (or the correct parts of a methodolgy) for the job in hand. If I was designing a system that was going to be outsourced to India Waterfall is probably the correct choice. If I'm working on a tactical (I hate that word) solution to make the most of a short term oporunity in a bank then something more agile (with a small a) is appropriate. There are a wealth of factors that affect the correct choice of methodology including team size, previous experience, management bias (unfortunately), length and size of project, who is going to maintain it and many other factors
