I built my first relational database in 1969 and my second project followed every one of the 12 agile points.

I took a team member to meet with the department head. Nobody did that at the time. When the dept. head asked for a change, I said “It’s his part of the project” and had him answer. We were working with cards.

Three years later, I added filters to the new accounting system — using cards.

You are correct. Methods are secondary.

The agile mindset comes first.

No methodology will save you if you make this mistake: Don’t YOU be the Cause of an IT Project Failure
