Ivar Jacobson

"There are many different processes promoted within the software development industry. But are they really that different? If you look closely at their content, you find that there are more similarities than differences."

"Often, there are complaints when a team seems not to be following the defined process. However, these complaints miss the point. The point of software development is to develop good software, not to slavishly follow a predefined process."

Ivar Jacobson just started an interesting article series in Dr. Dobb's called Enough of Processes: Let's Do Practices that I can recommend. I can only assume that it will lead up to recommending his own EssUp!
