Managing the design factory

I think I picked up "Managing the design factory"  from the references in the Larman & Vodde special. I wish I had read it years ago, so far it's a cracking read.

From the introduction

There are no best practices
...Best practices are only "best" in certain contexts and to achieve certain objectives.

..The great danger in "best practices" is that the practice can get disconnected from its intent and its context and may acquire a ritual significance that is unrelated to its original purpose.

Aaaaaamen brother
