We, as developers, have created the XP techniques to increase the quality of our work, and being able to adapt to ever-changing requirements.
Then we wrote the Agile Manifesto, to better capture the challenges of a world that is moving (too) fast and try to avoid being always a step behind the real customer needs.
The main purpose was removing waste to concentrate on real value.
Suddenly Agile became mainstream and after a while, we are now experiencing a big lie: the Managers Driven Agile era.
Can we get back to what we have created and make it useful again?
