This reminds me heavily of Alistair Cockburn, an influential writer in software development who terms software development (at least using his ideas) "a cooperative game - a finite, goal-seeking, group game centered around invention and communication."I've frequently seen the parallels between problems in the guild I run with and the "solution developer" where I work; the lack of reflection, lack of commitment are constantly killing projects and boss attempts.I highly recommend a reading of "Peopleware" or the non-technical parts of "Joel on Software" to raid leaders and other guild officers who like to think about these things.See http://alistair.cockburn.us/
