Extreme Programming (XP) is an approach to project management that emphasises agile processes, most notably agile teamwork. For this Focused Discussion, you will research XP to consider XP strengths and weaknesses as a project management methodology. Wells (2013) provides a good tutorial outlining XP.
To complete this Discussion:

Include in your analysis whether project planning is needed in an XP project management approach. If you have participated in information technology projects where XP was employed, describe your experience. Additionally, include in your post the sources you used to research XP.
