Chapter 27. Keep On Truckin': Completing the XP Road Trip

If your team is just starting out with XP, the first iteration is definitely the hardest. It's like driving in a foreign country. You know how to operate a car and how to read a map, but you can't understand the road signs at first, and everyone else drives much faster than you're used to. The next couple of iterations might not be much easier, but eventually you figure out what the signs mean and get used to the speeds.

The first XP team Lisa worked on completed two or three small projects of two to three iterations each before they started to feel like they knew what the heck they were doing. The retrospective you just completed will give you the starting point for making the next iteration more successful.
