The New Game In Town
The New Game In Town
For decades now, decision-makers have been faced with two quandaries in connection with software development for their organisations.
On the one hand, software – and software development – remains slow, costly, unpredictable and of poor quality. On the other hand, the need for software to support business initiatives, new products, and customer demands grow every day.
See: Software is Eating the World.
Traditional approaches to software development have clearly had their day in the sun. No company today would consider a transition into e.g. Waterfall or the V model to be a viable way forward. Even though many, through inter, are still stuck in those relatively unproductive approaches. On the other hand, Agile – the natural way forward for many – has proven itself a busted flush.
Until now, these two options (remain with the untrendy and unproductive Old School, or adopt the faddish and unproductive new school) have been the only options available to companies concerned with reducing the costs, and increasing the speed and quality, of software development.
I say until now, because there’s now a new game in town. Proven in over twenty years of diligent, practical, real-work application. Aligned to progress in e.g. psychology, sociology, neuroscience and group dynamics. Expressly designed for collaborative knowledge work (i.e. software and tech product development).
I invented this new approach, and I call it Quintessence. You can find it laid out in meaningful detail in my recent book of the same name.
There’s also a self-help book titled “Memeology” for organisation wishing to pursue Quintessence on their own terms.
And an earlier, foundational book titled “Hearts Over Diamonds” which puts everything into context.
So now, organisations of every stripe have a viable, and much more effective option for improving their software development efforts. A means to building quintessentially effective organisations. No longer is Agile the only game in town.
