dc.description.abstract Updating and maintaining legacy systems creates significant challenges for software developers. Modifying legacy applications can be a time-consuming process which is fraught with architectural and code minefields. In many instances, the same developers, because of their specialist knowledge, and the same processes have been used to improve these systems over an extended period of time. Introducing new practices into such an environment presents problems, on both the human and the technological level. This paper reports on the experience of implementing a scaled-down version of eXtreme Programming (XP) into a small manufacturing company. How the difficulties, in creating the climate for such an implementation, were overcome, and the resulting benefits of the experiment are reported on. Finally, the conclusions and lessons learned offer support and advice to others who may also be considering such an approach en_US
