The Life and Times of a Dev Yes, we're really that weird

Oh that more people got this.  Results Oriented Work Environment is a great concept (don't forget to read part 2 as well).

A fundamental principal of Agile is that once you know what the goal is for the iteration, its up to the team to reach that goal by any means necessary.  We don't really care when they work, as long as they get it done.  We don't care where they work, as long as they get it done.

The daily stand-up is a little at odds with this philosophy, but it's still important so that people can coordinate, and since it's a short meeting (less than 15 minutes), it's focused on results.

Agile is about results.  If you don't get that, you're probably still doing waterfall.
