I don't want to twist your words. It sounds like you're saying that often design and implementation must charge ahead without waiting for an in depth analysis, that the subject matter is still poorly understood by the time the solution has been commited to a single design. Is this a fair rendering of what you are saying?

What kind of methodology to you use to acheive such agility?

The reason I ask is because I've seen a large number of projects that started out this way, only to end up as death marches. Received on Tue Mar 30 2004 - 21:19:48 CST
