Summary
Agile propagandists make great claims about the advantages of being transparent about the state of their projects. They claim that this how mature relationships work and that "Honesty is the best policy". But is this true? Many of us work in dysfunctional organisations where honesty is the best way to get cheated. Surely Transparency is just not pragmatic?
