I fully agree with Kevin Powick who wrote Good article. Not only applicable to commercial website development, but almost all commercial software.
“You only get what you measure, so be careful what you measure.”
And more highly valuable tips when writing any type of software.
Somewhere in the middle are his golden additions to the Agile values:
Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
Working software over comprehensive documentation
Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
Responding to change over following a plan
If that doesn’t look familiar, you really need to read this.
I’ll add some more of my favorite dev team values:

Continuous delivery over deadlines
Support over blame

Highly recommended reading.
