Software Engineering, Project Management, and Effectiveness
There are so many ways I can share how we do what we do on our Microsoft patterns & practices team, but I think the simplest approach is to share the values, guiding principles, and practices. When our group changed leaders, one of the first things our new leader did was build consensus around what patterns & practices was all about. I suggested using the values, principles, and practices frame because I thought it was a proven model. It sets up the framework and the context in which we operate, which in turn, guides everything else. Here’s the result:
Values In patterns & practices we value:
Guiding Principles We use the following principles to guide our work:
Execution Processes, Practices, and Tools
J.D. - I can state without qualification that the Patterns & Practices group has been instrumental in allowing my company's clients in achieving their goals. This has been true for well over 5 years. Keep up the good work!
@ David -- that's great to hear!
