Recently [^] there was a post as to what causes agile to fail. Primarily, it blamed corporate culture. Interesting, to me, because it's real and true global philosophy is to give the appearance of progress and thus give a hierarchy of management something to report. Charts, videos, and (especially!) powerpoint with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each . . .

Has it ever occurred to its infeccionados that agile fails because it a failure? I propose the following:

Agile is a failure because it was developed by agile thinking:   get something out quick and make it work later.

Except they forgot that last bit.
