From today’s ACCU diary:

Mike: Would having chartered engineers “in charge” really make any difference to the numerous public sector IT projects which are struggling to meet their objectives?

Me: May be, at least, they would manage to convince the EU bureaucracy that the waterfall model should go :-)

Chris: Why… The waterfall has been proven in use on many successful projects… Ask NASA.

Mike: Now I’ve got the image of NASA doing agile development stuck in my brain:

Developer: “Good news, Mr Armstrong. We’ve got the software for launching your rocket done. Let us know when you get to the Moon, and we’ll start working on the landing procedures…”
