      Hmm. That page contains a ZIP file containing a little
      Web site.

      It says, during the implementation step, the developer
      writes code and then writes a unit test for it.

      Then, during the "project lifecycle", the "project
      leader" should "triage bug reports". (What's a "bug"?)

      The "system architect", during the first iteration,
      should "Create a visual depiction of system behavior
      for complex scenarios". Then she or he should
      "decompose systems into subsystems, determine
      interfaces," and "prototype key user interactions".

      The "Overview" page gives lip-service to the Agile
      Alliance Attitudes, "rely on people", "deliver
      business value", "partner with customers", and "adapt
      to change". Then the internal workflows don't talk
      about actually doing any of that stuff. It's all just
      spiral, without frequent releases, or sorting features
      in order by business value.

      The "deliver business value" bullet point says, "The
      key to any successful software development project is
      the delivery of working software that provides
      business value". They dropped the "frequent releases"
      idea.

      Yep, it all sounds pretty "Agile", folks!
