Never been a fan of Mr. Martin.

After all, the reason for:

> value safety, consistency, command-and-control, and plan execution

is specifically to counter the chaos of:

> risk-taking, rapid-feedback, intense, high-bandwidth communication between people that ignores barriers and command structures.

Granted, middle-management structures are not the solution but tend to become necessary as the product develops from a two person garage shop (or dorm room) implementation into a company that employs thousands of people, many of which have nothing directly to do with software development (legal team, help desk, sales and marketing, etc) but are very necessary. And it is those groups that start driving the requirements that get fed to the actual developers, not the other way around.

IMHO, the problem with Agile (well, one of many) is that it's a concept intended to maintain the illusion that the developers are in control of the product, when in reality they are not.
