Sustainable success of agile software development and lean manufacturing has led to its application to other business domains and general management. The results achieved cannot be the result of mere marketing of ideas under attractive brand names.

Agile software development has often failed notwithstanding of glaring success stories. 
The difference between successful and failing implementations is in leadership and organization culture. This sickness of working communities is partly responsible of the weakening of the success and economic crises that are part of current daily life.
