The myth in Agile is that it is meant to make you go faster.
It’s about working on the right thing, at the right time and delivering value to your customer.
It’s about avoiding statements like…
“We shipped, but no one is using it.”
“No one wanted all this extra stuff.”
“It doesn’t do what we thought it was going to do.”
Agile is about feedback and validation loops to ensure the right thing is always being worked on.
Going faster is just a by-product of working on the right things that matter.
