Change the Method, Change the Orders
Changing from a waterfall method to an agile method places a number of stresses on team members. During these times of stress, it’s not uncommon for teams or managers to enforce standard policies in an attempt to improve results in the short term. But, doing so will prevent the team from seeing the benefits an agile approach can bring and may cause the agile adoption to fail.
