    I just read your article “Adaptive Agility – Managing Complexity and Uncertainty” and found you had come to the same conclusion I’ve come to in the hardware product development world. My book “Adaptive Product Management: Leading Complex and Uncertain Projects” (http://a.co/2wRFxjV) makes the same point about considering complexity and uncertainty and picking a management style that works for that project.
