      XP success story:

      Colleague A, Coach and Chief Architect (the good kind) role. Too busy
      shmoozing & "architecting" to bother with coaching.

      Colleague B, lead implementor of the architecture, relentlessly helplessly
      cynical about A's wild architectural ideas.

      Solution: Make B the coach. Instant improvement in schedule & viability.
