Ever tried getting a recipe book and recreating your favorite dish made by your favorite chef? You have followed all the instructions, gotten the right ingredients, and channeled your inner Emeril, but the dish still does not come out a 5-star meal.

Congratulations! You have now convinced your management team to adopt agile. Everyone (or at least most) in your leadership team have extended their support toward this initiative. Everyone believes that this transformation will be excellent for your organization as 1) you are adopting agile 2) claim that your organization is challenging the status quo and 3) you will be able to do product delivery faster.
