The 5th value of the Manifesto for Agile Software Development

There is one more important value in addition to the other 4 values of the Manifesto for Agile Software Development and its evolution:

Critical thinking and independent judgment over the cult of personality and cult leaders

It promotes scientific skepticism over cargo-cults. It promotes a pragmatic and contextual approach and plurality over simplified and absolute truths and orthodoxy.

It helps to overcome things such as narcissism, self-interest, partiality
, bias, cronyism, groupthink, and the likes that can affect individuals, (sub)communities, commercial organisations as well as thought leaders.

Can you spot dysfunctions in IT and in the Lean and Agile community that this value can help to mitigate?
