This traditional Agile methodology has always been a great innovation.
I'm not sure what is your question. Agile methodologies, including scrum, has its own characteristic - pros and cons. Some projects may go better with agile, and some - with a traditional approach. As usual - it depends - on the complexity, level of uncertainty, innovation, clarity of requirements, experience of the team, practices in an organization, influence of key stakeholders or even the experience of the project manager.

Koti -

Scrum and adaptive approaches can work well but only when they fit the context of the work being done and the culture they are introduced into.

Scrum is not a project management framework and hence to make it fit a project lifecycle, it needs to be extended - it does not address transition/delivery concerns, nor does it consider factors such as getting funding, forming a team, defining the product vision and so on.

Koti, what is the question behind your post?
