Agile Development Projects

Knowing that I've been talking about how to find a happy medium between a waterfall design method and an agile development method, a colleague of mine passed along a great blog post by Jakob Neilsen this morning. It great to see usability experts discussing agile development processes that can be implemented for a variety of development styles and teams (especially small teams). I agree with Jakob's recognition that changing mindsets is probably the biggest design/development challenge.
