This is supposed to be an introductory presentation on Agile.
In this presentation I give some examples of heavy weight methods and their implications on your project. Then I give a quick overview of Agile methods, the rationale behind it, its origin, its values and principles. I move on to describe that what I see happening today in the industry is really waterfall in the name of Agile. I give some reasons why this is happening and then I give some pointers to move away from this flawed thinking.
Bottom line, Agile is not a Silver Bullet and don't fall pray to marketing gimmicks. Question dogmatic claims. Adapt Agile to your needs and take baby steps.
