What is right methodology?
Since beginning, software development was compared with manufacturing and construction, so early methodologies were largely influenced by them. They separated analysis and construction and came up with waterfall, or spiral methodologies. Finally, people are realizing is that the only construction in software development is compiling the source code and it’s all about design. Nevertheless, now there are tons of agile methodologies and new one coming every year. Sure there is a lot of commonality like lean development with emphasis on working software, short iteration, testing, etc. But, most of them are prescritive. Here, the thing, most companies have very unique business model and working environment, so one size does not fit. I do find Crystal family tries to come up with methodology based on company or team makeup. Again, most productive environment have smart people and little or no methodologies.
