Is the financial turbulence changing how we plan and deliver?

It might be coincidence, but I notice very clearly that the turbulence at the financial markets is fueling a discussion on planning and delivery of products, just to mention a few:
All the stories focus on agility, make smaller steps, plan less and just get it out there and ask for feedback. Fueled by attempts to optimize productivity, reduction of costs, reduce investments and lower long time commitments. This is nothing new, but for many organizations the required changes were just considered too risky: 'Why change if you do alright?' Today the situation is different, there is a constant news flow indicating that change is required. 
Yes, this might be the inflection point were we do change the way we plan our lives! What is your view on this?
