enough for a timebox, and resolve obstacles quickly. Management may still ask for a Gantt chart even though you don't need one.
If you're a developer or tester, you need to collaborate closely with your team to accomplish "done" for each feature. If you've never worked feature-by-feature before, this can be quite difficult. And while the timebox helps you stay focused, the intensity of the timebox might be different from how you are accustomed to working.
Moving to agile and seeing how the whole product comes together before the end of the project is a reward in itself. Try it.
