Rival Schools on SD

posted Oct 27, 2010, 1:41 PM by Eddie Woo
We have been looking at how important it is to work effectively as a team and to manage conflict resolution when developing a system. One of the primary sources of conflict is disagreement - not just over rival designs for a system, but on rival methods on coming up with the design in the first place.

Answer the following questions in a new classwork post:
  1. Describe the Waterfall, Spiral and Agile methodologies.
  2. Explain the key benefits and disadvantages associated with each one, making sure to show how each benefit and disadvantage is caused directly by the specific principles of each methodology.
  3. Research the following scenarios and then select a methodology that you think suits the development of the relevant system. With close reference to the unique characteristics of each situation, justify your choice.
