Problem Complexity





Problem Complexity

XP is ideally suited to projects requiring the close cooperation of specialists. One challenge at the beginning of such projects is getting everyone to work in concert while learning a bit about each others' specialities. For example, once I worked on a life insurance project. The actuary was patient with me as I began to learn enough actuarial math to pair with him. After a month, I was catching stupid mistakes. After several months, I was even helpful sometimes. I never became an actuary, but the resulting system (and team) was much stronger than if the actuary worked on his little corner of the system while I worked alone on the user interface.
