Everything about language games, touching into shared experience, and sufficiency-to-purpose still applies. The compelling question now becomes this: When does the team construct these additional work products? " Neither is optimal. If the requirements or designs change frequently, then it costs a great deal to Agile Software Development: New Foundations constantly regenerate them—often, the cost is high enough to jeopardize the project itself. On the other hand, if constructing markers for the future is left to the very end of the project, there is great danger that they will never get created at all.

They use those markers again, themselves, when they revisit parts of their work. Software development is therefore a cooperative game of invention and communication. There is nothing in the game but people's ideas and the communication of those ideas to their colleagues and to the computer. Looking back at the literature of our field, we see a few people who have articulated this before. Peter Naur did, in his 1986 article "Programming as Theory Building," and Pelle Ehn did, in "Scandinavian Design: On Participation and Skill" (as well as his magnificent but out-of-print book Work-Oriented Design of Software Artifacts).

Each team member is playing an infinite game called career.

Similarly, the company is playing an infinite game: its growth. To the company, the entire project is a single move within that larger game.
