Hard-Agile: Effective Software Development in the 21st Century (Alistair Cockburn)

Agile is for wimps ... or so it appears watching people poke at it half-heartedly and claim success while their projects suffer. The foundations for effective software development in the 21st century are clear by now: Craft, Cooperative Games, and Lean Processes. This is agile in the large, distributed agile, life-critical agile, hard-agile, agile that brings success. The three core elements not only explain the success of effective teams, they provide good advice to busy practitioners, and they create a sound basis for educating our next generations of developers.
