Agile is great and a rising star.

…but is it true that Agile is a silver bullet? Does following Agile guarantee a success for your project?

I doubt.

I came across a interesting article in which author listed out 8 reasons why Agile fails.

Here is the link to article: http://blogs.versionone.com/agile_management/2015/04/09/8-reasons-why-agile-projects-fail/

My questions are:

1) Which one is the number #1 reason that makes Agile project failed from your experience.

2) If your reason is not in the list above, what other reasons you can add?

What's your thought?

Cheers,
-Thanh
