Project management wasn’t the worst thing. It was ITIL based project management in particular because it rejects change, adaptability and flexible outcomes. At its core, ITIL demand up front project goals and then years later, when or if the project completes, those project goals are obsolete.
So we changed the equation to say that we will fix the time, the money, and the quality; which means that the remaining variable is the deliverables. Traditional project management does not deal well with this: the fallacy of project management is that we are building simple systems. It leads to the myth of define once and execute perfectly, which is impossible in IT because we build complex systems where the outcome is unpredictable at the time that we begin our journey.
So yes, I agree.
