Extreme Programming. It is about valuing the people on your team, and working effectively together, that is far from Extreme.

Extreme is a reference to taking a best practice and applying it to the extreme. Extreme code reviews become pair programming. Extreme testing becomes TDD, with comprehensive coverage. Etc.
