Hamster Driven Development

Do you sometimes feel like you're working in an IT sweatshop - or worse, a hamster gym with 30-day sprints, regular unnecessary customer releases and institutionalised overtime when it's "crunch time"?

Is your office starting to resemble a maze with a small lump of cheese at the end?

Does your team emphasize refactoring and "emergent design" (aka code-rewrite-discard) over up-front design (aka thinking ahead)?

Is the unit-testing holy grail of "100% code coverage" revered over the concept of delivering working software to the paying customer?

ICONIX Process Roadmaps by Doug Rosenberg

Software development can go in many different directions...

Answer: Use one (or more) of the process roadmaps in this book!
