This paper by Jim Highsmith (Wow. I almost camel-cased his last name. I think I need a few days off...) provides a pretty diplomatic rebuttal to a few common objections people have with Agile Processes. The Cole's Notes version:
- Most objections are based on misconceptions of Agile processes.
- People confuse XP with Agile. XP is one form of Agile development.
