This is the slide deck I used for the keynote at the Agile Open Holland Conference 2011, held November 3 & 4 in Dieren. Using this slide deck I explain about being dogmatic and religious about agile approaches, and how a lot of the lightweight approaches are not sufficient as such for most larger, more complex or enterprise projects.
