#182 – Reasons to Go Agile

There’s no universally correct reason to go agile (but there are a dozen absolutely false ones, such as wanting to get better at meeting the Iron Triangle of Project Management). Different organizations want to achieve different things through the agile way of thinking and working, so their motivations are, of course, different.

However, if you don’t really have the need to inspect and adapt on your deliveries because your surroundings are not dynamic, your context is not complex, or your technology is not experimental, then, have a long and hard think about whether the overhead of agile, which is often in the form of meetings (in Scrum, all the events support empiricism), is really worth it. Let’s remember that agile is not the answer to everything for everyone.
