Multiple Customers in XP

October 30, 2004 at 3:38 pm Leave a comment


Ron Jeffries has written a short but interesting article about how to deal with multiple customers: Petition the King. He uses the metapher of villagers coming to the king regularly (one a month or one every two weeks) to explain their requests. The king has limited resources and decides about the usage of the resources.

In XP the king is not a developer since decisions about distributing resources is a bussiness decision not a technical desicion. Therefore king is a kind of super customer, head of marketing for a product company or something similar.
