Thank you Faith for the kind words.
I've been slower than I'd like at getting ideas and techniques
published - and I've found I've had to iterate lots to find ways to
explain things such that they're easy to understand and put into
My ongoing struggles at a book can be found at:
www.outside-in-development.com. While the work is somewhat
incomplete, and much of what's there is a few iterations shy of
"done", you might find some of the collaboration techniques explained
there useful. Also, I try to give a "non-denominational" perspective
of agile development - although I can't guarantee it's completely free

regularly provide tactical ergonomics/usability support to enterprise
projects using traditional software development processes (can I say
waterfall here?) and am comfortable with applying UX methods in this
I now find that I have the opportunity to provide tactical ergonomics/
usability support to an agile team for the first time. I have a basic
understanding of how my approach must scale to fit but would be
extremely grateful if you could direct me to any introductory
resources on the web or in recommended texts.

I'll second the recommendation of Jeff's blog & web site - great stuff.
You might also find some of the stuff under <http://del.icio.us/tag/
