License to hack

Hi: To me it sounds like agile is being defined as "a license to hack". Isn't agile in essence creating minimual documentation - but still producing essential documentation? Isn't such the goal of EVERY project? Granted, the required level of documentation may vary for example for junior developers vs senior level developers, but, for the given environment, I thought the goal is still minimal - but essential - documentation.

Tony, where do you get this impression that agile is a licence to hack. 

I do believe your interpretation on agile documentation is correct, but don't think documentation is a core issue.  It's more about the iterative development and incremental requirements discovery.

Other reasons not to go agile 
  • When the team is geographically separated - can't have access to all the information you need when you need it, so need to plan up front how to get it.
  • If the project is safety critical - can't risk making a mistake, because somebody could be injured.
