Agile is not for you IF

In my previous posts I have tried to put forward my points on What an Agile Project needs for success, 11 areas an Agile Project Manager needs to focus o... and Scrum meeting. Are you kidding me?

In this post I am going to describe in my own words and experiences that Agile is not for you if you are among the following category.

1.  If you are not willing to change your mindset and continue to work the same way, you did before
2.  If as a manager, you think people are resources
3.  If as a developer, you think your job is just to code by specifications
4.  If your organization is run by bureaucrats
5.  If your team is not mature enough to handle changes frequently
6.  If you want to deliver something fixed within a fixed time frame
7.  If you can't have customer or Product Owner inputs on a regular basis
8.  If you have fairly straightforward requirements
