Manifesto for SabotAgile Software Development

We are uncovering better ways of

faking Agile Software development,

defending the status quo, and

advancing our careers.

Through this work we have come to value:

Defining rigorous processes with Milestones, Phase Gates, and Audit Trails

Tracking project and program progress with Gantt Charts, %-age completion reports and Red-Yellow-Green executive dashboards

Holding resources accountable with baselined contracts with fixed-scope, fixed-dates, fixed-costs

Preventing a descent into chaos with rigorous change control boards

Integrating phrases from flavor of the decade fads into lingo without changing behavior

This is how we have delivered software in the real world for decades.

And this is how we are going to do it!
