Agile, a software development model or a Religion?

Agile is a methodology that is growing within the software community. Many persons that start working in the IT-business start by working in Agile projects and never work in more sequential or iterative models, this has created a group of IT-professionals that has lost the personal thinking and defend Agile as if it was a religion. There are many dangers with this, "the wheel" is invented over and over again without anyone questioning it is one of them. This presentation walks through this common problem and presents different ways of counter actions.
