Agile Reckoning

On the 15th Anniversary of the Agile Manifesto, Practitioners Debate How Far the Movement Has Come and What's Next

Agile is everywhere. Agile is dying. The great debate over the future of agile is as lively as the one over whether it actually delivers all it promises. It still makes some organizations uncomfortable. "Agile is a dark art," says Robert Moores, PMI-ACP, PMP, program manager, Google, London, England. "When everyone really buys into true agile, companies move so fast it's incredible. But agile is also a term that's been heavily misused." It's been 15 years since a group of software programmers wrote the "Manifesto for Agile Software Development." It emphasized the value of"individuals and interactions over processes and tools, working software over comprehensive documentation, customer collaboration over contract negotiation, and responding to change over following a plan.”
