 Agile is a just standing up in groups  Agile is a just standing up in groups   Scope is not important in Agile   Scope is not important in Agile

This debate can go on forever.

Basically agile does have Requirements Gathering but it does it in a different way. Requirements are listed, prioritised and turned into user stories. The stories are worked on in sequence and requirement details emerge by a combination of demonstrations, assessments and collaboration with user teams.

All we can say is that in our waterfall days, we remember the big thick requirements document and how much of that was wasted effort by the time the project came to a close. The business may have stated a requirements document was correct but by the nature of changing demands it swiftly got out of date.

In this situation the projects often progressed on regardless, wasting resources on a solution that was not what was intended and was no longer able to deliver the originally proposed benefits.
