This includes the following:
Teach the team about XP and ensure that the team has a common understanding of the practices.
Facilitate the team's decision as to how aggressively the transition to the new practices will be.
Facilitate a team activity to identify what obstacles they will face in using the practices effectively. Ensure
that the team has a plan to overcome those obstacles.
Facilitate a team activity to identify what constraints will require adaptation of the practices. Ensure that these
adaptations are understood by the &lt;a class=&quot;elementLink&quot;
