Dear Authors,

  Welcome to the forum, thanks for hanging around ...

I had been into the so-called time-tested traditional models of designing delivering and managing projects for well over 15 years but
of late there have been a lot of pushes from higher-ups and lower down that we need to move into Agile.

As a seasoned project manager, I am a bit skeptical about moving towards agile since we need to make a quantum shift in the way
we have been doing things which have given predictable results if not in all occasions but mostly.
given that, my question to you is: is Agile/Scrum Panacea for all the issues that we have been facing in traditional models?

Thanks and Regards

A panacea is a solution or remedy.  Most agile proponents, particularly the Scrum folks, will tell you that "Agile won't fix your problems, it reveals them."  So, start from that kind of mindset.
Consider Paul's rocket mass heater.
