Waterfall Manifesto

Take a break from Agile Scrum and here is what I would strongly recommend you all - the Waterfall Manifesto. I assume the authors are serious when they describe this as - "Manifesto for Realistic Software Development"

Read on what author documented in waterfall principals (and they are so practical and true.....!) -
  • Changing requirements are a pain in the ass.....and make him pay dearly for just thinking about change.
  • Business people and developers ......They both have other important activities to carry to waste their precious time in meetings. Furthermore, they do not speak the same language.
  • Build projects around solid processes because you know that individuals are even more unreliable than software
  • Project reports and billable hours are the primary measure of progress.
  • Recognition of technical excellence and good design allows developers to think that they are free creative artists
  • Complexity - the art of maximizing the amount of time needed to understand your design and code - is essential to define your value as a developer ( and to protect your job).
  • At regular intervals, the team should meet to eat pizzas and drink beer. It helps developers to forget that they are working in a bloody software development project and confirms that the management really cares about people
