Even in XP there are things you need up front. These include:
- Appropriate tools to the problem domain.
- A team skilled with those, and willing and able to go XP.
- Customers willing to commit time to their involvement in the process.
- A SystemMetaphor.
- StarUnit and an SCM appropriate for your tools.
- At least one satisfactory SpikeSolution.
- An initial CommitmentSchedule full of UserStories.
All these things are architectural.
