Same here. My company has drunk the agile Kool-Aid, and we're now getting agile product development (mostly unregulated/limited regulation P&C).

We had a two day workshop on this earlier in the year, but have decided not to pursue it at this time. My problem is the name. Agile devotees are very militant about what has to be in place to be called Agile. That's fine, except agile was already a word before they co-opted it.

So, we had ridiculous conversations about "being Agile" versus "being agile".

In the end, we decided to pronounce this movement "a GEE lay" like the dad pronounces "fra GEE lay" in Christmas Story when the leg lamp arrives.
