Summing Up

  • Silver bullets don’t exist. Each project has unique characteristics and, therefore, needs a specific development method.

  • To design your own method, learn from all existent approaches, processes, frameworks, methods, and practices.
  • Keep it simple at first. Start using it ASAP and improve it based on actual feedback.
  • Someone must be in charge of orchestrating everything related to your brand new development method.
  • Continual continuous improvement is crucial.
