Generally I find showing rather than telling to be the most effective
technique. If I think some practice, say TDD, will help a client I'll
just start writing tests. Once you have a demonstrable benefit it's
easier to sell to others, which in turn then makes persuading folk
that related techniques from the same stable could be a good idea too.
