Hi All, its my first time posting here !

'whatever agile method we decide to work with going forward ' this was the comment /question put out to the team by management recently .I have been researching the various types of agile methodologies out there but would appreciate your comments on how your team, organisation determined which one made sense for your team and the work that needed to get done. 

Thanks in advance for some input

Firstly, Scrum is not a methodology, its a framework.  Secondly, the agile team should be empowered to decide which agile implementation to utilise and then adapt it to their teams process but also ensuring that they stay within the provided guardrails in order to ensure that they are implementing it correctly.

Thanks for this input Scott . Whole heartedly agree the team should be empowered to decide which agile, right now though as part of that process I am researching other frameworks . I am keen to see what other frameworks are out there , I came across Crystal the other day, I had never heard about it !

It is something that depends on severals factors for example: the context, the reference sector ect.
like saying,  for dinner I have the knife, fork or spoon to use for eating. Can you tell me,  what I should use? it all depends on the food you have on the table .
You have to start with why .
Why you want to use agile methodology and for this I suggest you first start with the 5 why method.

My advice is to set the bar higher than that. Scrum, for example, is about establishing empiricism under complex conditions. This can challenge people's very understanding about what is sensible and about what done really means.
