In the 11 years since the Agile Manifesto was created, the adoption of agile concepts has continued to grow. The number of agile user groups, conferences, and books is a strong indication that more and more people are at least exploring the idea, if not working to improve their adoption and execution. This growth has been so significant that Gartner has declared that “agile is now mainstream”.
Along with this growth in adoption and exploration of agile, the number of myths surrounding agile has grown as well.
