Agile Is Not About Predictability
The moment you make Agile about predictability you've already lost.
The whole point is that there will be surprises and you can't predict everything.
You don't need Agile to be predictable, but to be adaptable.
And when you're more adaptable, you will make more progress but don't confuse that with being predictable.
And with this in the back of your mind, why do you have a long product backlog?
If you know all the steps already, what's the point of adapting?
And if you don't know all the steps, why pretend like you do know?
Every step you take helps shape the way. And if that doesn't apply, then you don't need Agile.
