in the organization, so that nothing happens to distract or disrupt the business. It deals with the
systems fundamentals: recruiting; deployment and development of resources; the building of
solid working relationships, the development of teams and people; and planning for the success
of the organization. This involves also being an employee champion.
A manager's role can be visualized as a conduit. What your team sees is highly dependent on you, the conduit. You are the primary (not the only) source of information, priority, nature of work, and philosophy for your team. How much of an organization and a management's philosophy is passed on to your team, will heavily depend on you.

Extreme Programming (XP) is a software development methodology that
enables users, business people, programmers, and computers to communicate
effectively. Perl is a dynamic programming language that lets an XP
team embrace the inevitable change caused by effective communication. Perl
the fixer and doer of the pair, and XP is the organizer and facilitator. Together
they help you build robust software applications efficiently.
Like any good marriage, the partners of Extreme Perl support each other....

in project management, particularly in the construction field. Project management is a
carefully planned and organized effort to accomplish a specific one-time task. For
example, constructing a building or implementing a new computer system, all need to be
well-managed. Projects are conceived and completed by people, who are involved in the
whole process of project execution and completion.

Probably the single most important thing in project management is communications. It is said that if good communications exist in a project, the team will be motivated and the project will succeed in spite of problems that might kill another project.

It is generally agreed among project managers that communications skills are the most important skills that a project manager can have.
We recognize many managers may not be able to pick and choose their team, but if at all possible, the first
practical step in building a collaborative team is selecting team members with the right attitude and complemen-
tary skills. Particularly, if the organization has not worked with XP before, the team members should be people
who are adaptable and willing to try new ways of working, although having a few non-believers can have its
advantages. In theory, XP teams have no experts – all developers work on all aspects. In reality, sometimes
experts are needed when the team...
The Team builds the product that the customer is going to consume: the software or website,
for example. The team in Scrum is “cross-functional” – it includes all the expertise necessary
to deliver the potentially shippable product each Sprint – and it is “self-managing”, with a very
high degree of autonomy and accountability.
