Shortcomings of Many Project Methodologies

There are shortcomings to any methodology. Before we start by describing the best way to proceed with project methodologies, we need to first understand where methodologies can possibly go wrong. In my search for the uber-methodology to recommend, I realized that many project methodologies:

Are abstract and high level.

Contain insufficient narratives to support these methodologies.

Are not functional or do not address crucial areas (i.e., QA, CM, testing).

Ignore the industry standards and best practices.

Look impressive but lack real integration into the business.

Use nonstandard project conventions and terminology.

Compete for similar resources without addressing this problem.

Don't have any performance metrics.

Take too long to complete because of bureaucracy and administration.
