It's not the methodology you use that's going to be successful in the project, it is the mindset that the team has around it. There's plenty of waterfall projects that have successfully delivered on time and on budget because the team had the right mindset towards it. And equally there's plenty of examples of agile projects that have failed to deliver, because the team involved haven't had the right mindset or haven't bought into it. It doesn't matter how you deliver a piece of work. That's not what's going to determine the success of it. What's going to determine the successes is that you've got the right people involved and that they bring in the right mindset into it as well.

It’s not necessarily which one is better; it’s which methodology is the right fit for achieving your desired outcomes. Both work, but require different mindsets and support models to be effective.

Almost anything is better than Waterfall

In theory Agile, in practice waterfall
Our company embraced waterfall, but continues to have very strict budget controls, delivery deadlines etc that don’t mesh well with Agility concepts

First time you over spend = career reduction ahead

Sorry clarifying- we embraced Agile, but run and require control of waterfall….
