Agile Is a Discipline, Not a Methodology

Agile requires real cultural change. Unfortunately, many people new to Agile don’t see the connection between the principles and the practices. In their eyes, Agile is just another process, something that requires following a checklist of behaviors. Other processes in their experience, such as CMMI and ITIL, never asked them to adopt a new worldview. Therefore, even if they become aware of the important connection between Agile principles and practices (which they may not), they may have no past experience in software innovation for making the connection between them.
