With the successful adoption of Agile in Software Development, there is a trend to force fit the software mindset of applying Agile into other areas of work. Agile adoption in Systems Engineering teams or Hardware teams, have met with resistance from the cross-disciplinary teams involved in building large systems. The pure Agile Ways-of-working is not helping the Systems Engineering teams to appreciate the solution proposed by Agile evangelists from the software world.

Large System Development today has to deliver to the same market demand that the software is addressing - faster time to market at lower cost and high quality with highly motivated employees. The problem for today's Large System Development, needs a solution which takes the lessons learnt from the Agile community and lessons learnt from the product companies in the manufacturing world over decades. This needs a balance between the risk averse methods of the traditional world and the risk seeking approach from pure Agile world.
