Software Development Methods & Philosophies
This research is incomplete.
- There are many methods and philosophies that describe how a team or organization should develop software.
- Teams adopt these methods and philosophies inherently or without intentional thought. Which leads them to be suboptimal in their performance.
- There is not one method that is best suited for all cases.
My goals with this research are to a.) identify and understand the individual and shared properties of each distinct method, philosophy, team, and product type in a software development context; b.) Produce recommendations on which methods and philosophies should be used with each team and product type; c.) Describe any methods and philosophies that work best together; and d.) Describe any methods and philosophies that work against each other.
