Sample text

In contrast, the adaptive view recognizes that an organization, much like an organism, must continually reconfigure and align itself to an ever changing environment (for example, see Morgan 2006). Finally, the interpretive view incorporates a social reality into strategy-making: The strategy chosen likely will reflect the competing worldviews of those who have a stake either in its formulation, implementation or results. Habermas (1984) frames these approaches similarly, pointing to the limitations of social processes grounded in instrumental reasoning.

Therefore, the DSDM approach towards project management is largely about facilitating the work of the development teams, with daily tracking of the project’s progress. Finally, Crystal’s solution to project management focuses on increasing the ability to choose the correct method for each individual purpose (Cockburn 2002). 2, the overall length of the bar demonstrates which software development life-cycle phases are supported by the different agile methods. 2 shows that agile methods are focused on different aspects of the software development life-cycle.

Development efforts that are consistent with the agile paradigm might not conform neatly to “normal science” approaches, raising the risk that what scholars report or suggest is inaccurate or inappropriate. Researchers exploring development must themselves go “back to school” and look to theories or methods that are more consistent with the emerging environment. 7 Conclusion Changes in the milieu of software development are demanding and will continue to challenge professionals for the foreseeable future.
