The key question in all these techniques is "What is the key constraint, or freedom, that stops / allows work to proceed?". It's all about the [theory of] constraints, e.g. Eli Goldratt, 'The Goal'

In agile it is the realisation that the manufacture cost (running the compiler) is almost zero, so one can concentrate on the other problem - do we know what we want, i.e. continuously ask the customer if the product is what was expected.

For the Circuit board design, the layout of the board is a time constraint, along with knowing if the customer has their external circuitry stabilised (there it's about the interface(s)). So concentrate on getting the time killer (and or cost / quality killer) right.

All in all, the best development strategy is to engage the brain, learn from others, and avoid blindly copying the many misunderstood fanboy techniques. There are no silver bullets (see “The Balle-Argentee Method.”).
