Cost of Supporting a Methdology

Nothing is free, not even maintaining project methodologies. In its simplest form, there may be minimal expenses if the methodology is relatively easy to use. If you have a complex SDLC or an iterative life cycle, the costs to support and maintain such methodologies rise incrementally. Either an internal department can maintain methodologies, or this support may be outsourced to an external vendor. In either case, it will cost you money.

Additionally, support costs should be variable based on the priority set by the client demanding the support. This can take many forms, but most often it means that if a client ignores the project methodology guidelines and assigns a higher priority for his or her concern, some cost possibly an internal charge-back must be associated.
