Scott Miller Appsguild - Software craftsmanship, project management, and the biz of software
Working in corporate America, in a company that does not solely do software development as a product or service, has its challenges. As an example, hardware and software are always "good enough". I have seen Vista but have never used it. Every company I have worked for wipes the new PC's of Vista and installs XP.

And processes will inevitably gravitate to BDUF (big design up front). One of the comments was that we did not have enough documentation and project artifacts.

As my previous posts have said, we have been using lean/agile software development practices for some time. But recently the word came down from corp HQ To use a company-wide process, based on the PMI. So back to PMI we go!

I am so *sick* and freakin' *tired* of these edicts that come from the top. I truly don't understand the "one size fits all" mentality of a Solution Implementation Life Cycle (SILC) process. I truly don't understand companies that hire people for their skills, experience, and knowledge, and then not listen to their suggestions and input.

I hope this is meant to be a good thing for you! I hope you are truly happy about the change! Good luck...let us know how it goes!
