large hierarchical organizations are a failed structure.

I agree. People in general often believe (or say) that they want to buy their products from large companies so they get the benefits that the large ($$$) company can provide (service, repairs, etc).

However, if you ask a person questions like the following then no one says, "Oh, yes, I'd love to be involved with a large company."

1. Would you like to interact with a large doctor's group where you are literally known by an ID number and you get assigned to a different doctor who has your records every time?
2. Would you like to have an insurance company that is so enormous that it takes 3 hours to get them on the phone?
3. Would you like to go to a grocery store that is so large that you have to ride in a motorized vehicle to get from one aisle to another?

Break out your team, do agile development somewhere else and bring the result back to the organization.

Right! Agile is for producing a product. The rest of the company can do the other administrative things as a large organization, but the development team needs only the people that are specifying, building, testing, (etc.) the product (a Self-organizing team will arise).
