1 - In my experience (in multiple companies), the implementation of agile has led to a bureaucratic layer of project managers and business analysts with no proficiency at software engineering nor the software development lifecycle. The end result are projects that take too long, lean towards mediocrity, and cause the customer (internal or external) to blame the developers, whose hands were tied by the aforementioned project managers and business analysts.


Yes, that sounds like most projects everywhere, most of the time.
That is because that the old "We manager-types will tell you how long things should take and the functionality that should be in there, even though we have no idea about either one and have not even attempted to gather data about either one."

That is the old-school management theory that the author of Unlocking Enterprise Agility is attempting to open everyone's eyes to. It is based on principles from 1911 with a study of how people are like machines so we should just determine how many movements they should make to build a product. Then we can just set the schedule and have the minions crank out the widgets.

But, of course, if you call the thing Agile but all the principles still follow the old-school pattern then you do not have Agile.

2- I'll read the article. It looks quite interesting.
