Re: Has Agile become a dirty word?

Couldn't agree more. Agility has been bastardized by all sorts of consulting organizations looking to do development on the cheap. I've found that they often sell agility while only utilizing the agile practices that allow them to deliver quickly without any thoughts of the long term viability of the solution. Somewhere along the line continuous design and refactoring became no design and we'll fix it if you pay us. Inevitably once you've been burned you fall back into the safe, welcoming embrace of process heavy waterfall methods, which is sad. I suppose it's up to clients to educate themselves and demand that their "agile" partners embrace the agile method in its entirety; my personal experience suggests that letting them pick and choose what works for them will only lead to trouble down the road.
