web - a beautiful transfer of agil coding to building a house to show you how bad this approach can be

Miles English has published a beautiful text to demonstrate how bad agil development can be if you are doing things totally wrong (and at the end, sadly this is the common way of building software :-(). He illustrates the agil approach by start building a house without knowing how this should look like.
The sad truth is, that dishonesty is build up from this approach. The development team starts doing things secretly to fix the flaws they had to build. The consequence of this is, that even simple task are taking more time then expected (because of the hidden refactoring) which in turn disgusts the management.
At the end, both side are talking but no one is listening because no one is trusting the other sides words.
