Win a Copy (or Two) of Succeeding with Agile

Succeeding with Agile: Software Development using Scrum is now shipping. To celebrate, I will be giving a copy of the book to two readers of this blog. To win, enter as a comment to this post the one most valuable bit of advice you would give to a team that wanted to succeed with agile. I will pick the one bit of advice I like best and send the author a copy of the book. I will also pick a second winner at random from those who submit. So, you've got two chances to win so let's hear your best one bit of advice. I'll run the contest through the evening of 11 November. (How about through 11 pm on 11/11?) I'll pick the winners on 12 November. Good luck. Also, this post officially kicks of my 20-posts-in-10-weeks commitment. I'll be posting here a lot more frequently over the next 10 weeks sharing short ideas from Succeeding with Agile.
