X-Agile vs Y-Agile
Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done.
The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams.
If you want to be agile, you need to be Theory-Y.
* Theory-Y is often considered a “management theory”, but actually is more general than that. Theory-Y is a fundamental assumption about human behaviour – that says people are intrisicly motivated (rather than Theory-X, which says they are motivated by rewards and punishments).
