Continuous Improvement, Autonomy, Validation - these terms are becoming so worn that they feel like business jargon. But if you have experienced the pain that Stagnation, Command & Control and Big Bang Deployment brings, you have ample reason not to look back. The mild embarrassment that comes with joining the 'Agile cult' is greatly outweighed by the soul-numbing awfulness that is the alternative. Although the above is my experience too, this is not that story. I have also had experiences with Chaos - the inferno that regularly erupts in Startupland and in many Open Source projects. It, not Agile, is the real antithesis to the frozen hell that is Waterfall / Taylorism / TheoryX . This is not that story either. I actually started appreciating what I now call the Agile mindset, on a sailing boat.
