Hi everyone,

I think the subject line says it all: Do you think that in order to use an agile method (xp/scrum) with succes you need "over averag leveled" sw-developers?

What's your views/experiences?

References etc. will be appriciated.

Thanks in advance,

To the contrary - Agile processes provide exactly that kind of meaningful, frequent feedback that the average team needs to accomplish the exceptional.


The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
