Topic: Methodology Wars: The Return of the Developer
A lot of fuss is made of one methodology versus another, and there are lots of gurus and IT services companies who will assure you that their methodology is at least one of the keys which can unlock the door to project salvation.
In my humble opinion, it is possible to fail using any methodology. That’s quite easy; the Dark Side of the Force is everywhere. It is also possible to succeed with different methodologies. A project can also succeed in spite of, rather than because of the methodology. So what’s the key? Is it the methodology or something underlying it? Can we find the Good Side?
In this talk I will draw on my experience in Wellington is software development. I have seen and been part of many projects, using different or ostensibly the same methodologies; some very successful projects and some not so successful. I want to identify some elements that contributed to or impeded their success. This is not going to be an academic and rigorous comparison of methodologies.
I will be opinionated, and will be quite happy if some healthy discussion results.
