collocation: most of us know of counterexamples.
However, an attempt at Agile is /much/ more likely to founder when
done distributed, because human communication is such a critical
aspect of Agile.
I would expect that blessing distributed Agile adoption would result
in disproportionately more failures and that it would be more
damaging than telling people the truth, which is that their chances
are much better if they work collocated.
Curiosity is more powerful than skepticism.
