Agile can’t fail

Whatever transformation initiative or framework adoption it is, if it fails, it gets the blame. Agile, lean, OKRs, etc.

But a concept can’t fail, just as it can’t succeed. It’s just a concept. It doesn’t come with inherent success criteria that define success or failure.

An idea, mindset, framework, etc., can’t succeed or fail. Only our implementation of them can, but that’s hard to admit so we blame the thing instead.
