wise words indeed

I was reading Brian Taylor’s blog and came across this quote:

…Without transparency and scrutiny, any system remains open to abuse by pressurised officials…

How true. As part of the new project management structure at UHI, the software developers, including myself, are investigating more rigorous methods for requirements gathering, dealing with change and managing iterative development and release schedules. We’re looking at User Stories, which I’ve used before on a few projects I’ve worked on but to paraphrase Brian Taylor, even with the best will in the world, if your processes aren’t transparent, they are open to heavy abuse.

I look forward to a new era of openness and transparency in software project management.
