Getting Real: A better way to build software

Major part of my inspiration for setting up IT efficiently at my current company comes from this book by the people behind Ruby On Rails and other great stuff: Getting Real.

It introduces various best practices in building web oriented applications, such as: build less, fix time and budget / flex scope, do what you are passionate about, etc. etc.

The book goes on and on, and I believe this is worth reading for anyone who is frustrated about the way their projects go, the way software is being built, and the way applications are released. I do sense a lot of "eXtreme Programming" practices in this work, but it looks at things from a slightly different angle which is refreshing and definitely worked for me!
