Why a Project Methodology

Many companies today do not use any formalized project methodology. They run their businesses as they always have. However, the business and technology landscape is changing rapidly. Business today calls for dynamic methodologies and processes, gearing companies to reinvent themselves so that they can produce products and services faster than ever before. Additionally, being able to produce gadgets of the right quality and specification is key. How does a company change virtually overnight, to become a company that can deliver such gadgets for their clients? Jim Highsmith of Agile Software Development Ecosystems (Addison-Wesley, 2002) states: "In a world of constant change, traditional, rigorous software development methods are insufficient for success" (p. 22).

The secret to success is the project-based company. With this comes certain provisos: 1.

A set of flexible project management methodologies.

Processes that can be updated to support these methodologies.

Resources that need to be aligned with the methodology.

Business functions that need to support these projects.

If you are not efficient or not getting a quality product developed in time or to specification, you need a new project methodology.
