Comments:

Note to myself

To highlight how the "new deal for software development" - ("http://www.software-development-experts.com/the-new-deal.aspx") principles and assertion is correct in all its essence.


We assert:

Faith-based bias in selecting and using methods negatively affects outcomes;
Generally-accepted practice is preferable to branded methods;
In practice you must tailor your approach based on the context of your endeavor and the culture of your organization;
Software projects must be steered through dynamically changing circumstances;
Collaboration across the entire software value-chain enables holistic efficiency.
To move forward as an industry, we advocate:

Studying software development endeavors as both socio-economic and socio-technical systems;
Replacing self-serving rhetoric with empirical evidence of practice efficacy;
Uncovering the contextual and cultural fit-for-purpose of software development practices;
Promoting leadership principles based on honest predictions of outcomes and uncertainties;
Promoting socioeconomic improvements as the primary benchmark of software value.
