A team of duds?

Timothy High started a great discussion about whether agile requires amazing collaborative people to succeed. Since he admitted to being obtuse, I went on the attack...

My nugget: "Is Agile an elitist software process that can only succeed with the brightest and best? No! (But people have applied XP in competitive or control type of environments with success by carrying this approach.) Agile has a higher chance of success in a collaborative environment."

I did find it amusing when he said "So, what happens when you get stuck with a team of duds? A common response from agile evangelists about the problem with “problem” people is “why would I even want to work with people like that?"
