Your team isn't doing agile!  Also, "agile" isn't something you "magically apply" to a development team and expect it to work.  Your entire product development organization needs to be agile for it to work for the dev team.

Put simply, an agile (software development) process allows stakeholders to request the implementation of small pieces of functionality.  The implementations can then be reviewed by the stakeholders, and the requirements could potentially be refined or revised.  This is immensely valuable, because it's very difficult to get software requirements right the first time.  Don't misinterpret this for a "free for all" when it comes to defining requirements.  The agile process simply makes it easier to deliver a continuous and progressive path towards the final product, because customers usually don't know what they want until they've seen what they didn't want.

I highly recommend watching this video (in fact all videos on Clean Code by Uncle Bob).  At my organization, the set of Uncle Bob videos is mandatory instruction for all devs and dev managers.  A few of the early videos are required to be watched (and understood) by the entire product team.  I understand we're probably in the minority.

What is Agile?[^]
