Agile projects and the project context
My investigations and experience suggest a stable environment doens't so much need to approach projects with an adaptive method. One the other hand, when your project s operating in a dynamic environment, being adaptive seems sensible. Especially when there is a time to market pressure.
One of the significant differences between effectie agile organsiations and tradtional ones is the orientation to process or product management. In fact - nce you start looking at an agile approach to portfolio management the development strategy even moves away from projectised work.
This seems to me to be strongly related to the concepts of SOA and enterprise architecture. With these models in palce a lot of analysis is done for you. It is much easier to know what and how to build.
