Re: Has Agile become a dirty word?

The main problem with any process is discipline. If the team doesn't have it, the leadership doesn't expect nor encourage it and instead demands results yesterday, then no process will work. Agile expects team members to converse over a story while they implement it. And the team members are expected to understand and stay within the scope of the story. If they are simply bad, lack discipline or just want to get it done, the result will not be pleasing. When that happens it is only natural to look for a clear way to give orders. It all depends - and that's part of the agile manifesto - on the people. To use Agile e.g. in an XP fashion you got to have the right people on the team. If you don't, then you can still embrace change and all that, but you need to modify the process and even start assigning tasks (preferebly done by a senior and more "agile" developer).
