So many frameworks, So many rules, so much stuff to select, learn, and apply. Which framework should you choose? Which tools should you buy? Whose version is the right one?

In the past ten years, there's been SO much study, research, and documentation about best practices that we may have lost sight of the mark. Doing our best work, making people awesome, and optimizing throughput of high-quality, high-value product hinges on a mere few, simple principles.
Confusion ensues because no two organizations, products, or teams, are quite alike. Perhaps because we crave a one-size-fits-all solution, we end up with too many options and too much complexity in implementation.
