Everything you are talking about is why this book is so fantastic.
The author takes the history of software development back to the publication of the seminal management theory book from 1911 (Principles of Scientific Management by Frederick Winslow Taylor). His point is that companies are still managing people and processes by that guide written over 100 years ago.

Quote:
It was not lost on the people doing the work (the programmers) that the way things were going was not sustainable. Throughout the 1990s, professionals across the software industry would meet periodically and share ideas. What do some of these emerging ways of thinking have in common? What are ways that we can improve the way software is written? People recognized that things needed to change, but the ideas had yet to coalesce in a meaningful way.


Quote:
As a result, top-down, fixed strategies—however well executed—no longer predictably yield the results we expect.

From the perspective of the incumbent accustomed to doing business in a more predictable world, this type of business environment may seem chaotic. Only by adjusting and learning better, faster, and more economically than their peers can companies gain an “agile advantage.”

To start embracing a new way of operating, it is necessary to think beyond the simplifications useful in a more predictable context defined by early thinkers such as Frederick Taylor. As the world has changed to become more complex, the way we approach business strategy needs to reflect a more adaptive view of the world.
