      Does "less costly failure" == "success"? Everyone knows it's better to get
      out early than late if the ship is sinking, but to say that "Agile can't
      fail" because you got out early. well. the ship still sank right? If it
      were my ship I wouldn't call that a success. "Early failure" might be
      preferable to "Late failure" but like my racing buddies say. "Second place
      is First Loser". Being the best loser doesn't make you the winner.



      I guess to be very cynical, if all Agile has to offer me is 2nd place. I've
      been had.

      Early failure is less costly than late failure.
