Agile is just a buzzword to mean

  1. We don't Design

  2. We don't Document

  3. We BARELY Test

  4. And the part management loves the most: EVERYTHING IS PRIORITY ONE

And only the biggest hourly consultant incel douchebags think you get a better product out the back end of this horse.

The IRON Triangle

  • Good

  • Fast

  • Cheap

Pick AT MOST 2. - entropy declares you can get none.

The biggest issue I have seen now is:

  • Programmer A starts with feature A
  • Programmer B starts with feature B
  • Programmer C starts with feature C

  • Tester tests Feature A and is OK

  • Tester tests Feature B and is OK
  • Tester tests Feature C and is OK

  • Feature A gets merged to develop

  • Feature B gets merged to develop
  • Feature C gets merged to develop

  • Develop is now broken nothing works but hey that is not for this SCRUM team we deploy it anyway.

Agile development exposed as techie superstition • The Register

'If you use care in framing your hypothesis and in designing your small, frequent tests, she suggested, your organisation will improve over time. '

'"How many looked at the randomized controlled studies that provided evidence that agile was better than your current process?" she asked. '

'Rising, a consultant, author and COO of The Hillside Group, asked for a show of hands from anyone doing some flavour of agile development. '

'At DevOps-focused London conference Continuous Lifecycle* today, Linda Rising challenged the superstition of tech professionals, a group that ought to have some affinity for science. '

'Rising encouraged those exploring new ways of working to involve others, to tell stories about their small experiments. '

No response.

And so it goes. All development processes come with a lot of hype, but the claims of productivity gains never seem to have any kind of robust analysis behind them. The studies always seem self-serving where some outcome is desired by participants and researchers. You would expect that a bunch of techies could do better than sociology academics, but seem to fall into the same pitfalls.

The Houses of Parliament, which is also just opposite Westminster Abbey, where the conference was held, also uses agile development.

@acheron2012 - your comments, just class! :)
