2011 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 17,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

    Peter, which are the two approaches you are talking about?

    Waterfall is one approach to lifecycle not separate from it (other lifecycles could be V, spiral, itterative).

    ITIL and project management are not mutually exclusive nor directly comparable: they as for different purposes. IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) is about delivering “business as usual” service. project management is about the development of a product or capacity to change. So comparison those doesn’t make much sense.

    Or are you tring to compare lifecycle against method? That way lies a dogma of “best practice” which leads to failing projects and unthinking service organisations.

    By that I mean that saying one lifecycle is better than another out of context leads people to ignore their context in lifecycle selection.As some lifecycles are better suited to specific contexts, chosing the wrong one will reduce your project’s chances for success. If you stop thinking about what you do is delivered for the customer (is it truly a service or is it a project?) then you miss the opportunity to taylor your service and block continous improvement opportunities.
