This book introduces Crystal Clear, a better lightweight methodology for building software. It describes the roles, teams, values, intentions, habits, activities, policies and work products of a small software development team for whom time-to-market and development costs are critical considerations. Alistair Cockburn is one of the founders of the Agile software development movement. He spells out proven best practices based on his extensive experience helping organizations build software quickly and with less cost. The author understands that small teams cannot be burdened by "process-heavy" software methodologies. By advocating that developers stay close together and remain in steady, good-will communication with customers and users, this book teaches the reader how to develop software that not only does what it is supposed to do, but also gets completed on time and within budget.
