Dale Emery on the Prime Directive

Dale Emery wrote a wonderful post about the Prime Directive on the ExtremeProgramming yahoogroup. This blog entry is mostly to prevent me from losing track of Dale’s comments, as is easy to do on a busy mailing list. I want to be able to go back and re-read his words.

An excerpt:

I love the Prime Directive–especially the second part of it, about “given … the situation”–because it invites me to identify and challenge and adjust those givens. Once I have identified and acknowledged those conditions that led me (then) to do something that I (now) believe to be less than what I “could” do (whatever “could” means), I can set to work adjusting those conditions.
