In the last couple of years, some agile practitioners are moving away from the core values and principles. We are now seeing that many of the practices we love in Agile is reduced to academic ramblings. This fuzziness has lead parts of the community back to vague and undisciplined processes. In large organizations this is becoming particularly prevalent since many people that really never understood the core values, now adopt simplified ways of Agile, ignoring the hard and still most important parts of it.
