All your projects are waterfall - that's great. What about marketing campaigns? What about new product development? What about research?

Agile was developed to work in unknown territory, and we are experiencing a lot of that now:

How do I deal with my company trying to get work done under lockdown?
How do we perform drug trials in an impossibly short time?
How do we prepare to live on Mars?

It's these types of projects that are taking advantage of Agile - working with a lot of unknowns, uncertains, and complexity. Waterfall is great, and when you pair that with being able to build and support a team that can deal with this type of problem, you have a very broad type of problems you can address.
