No method ... no serenity !
Each project is unique. It follows its own logic, determined by specific constraints, in terms of organisation but also in terms of technology.
Our experience allows us to recognize the appropriate method for any given situation in order to reach the result in the most efficient way. Schematically, three different approaches can be distinguished.
The project approach
Beginning by analysing the expressed need, we break it down organically. In this way, the whole process can be carried out by detailing each step to be completed. Controls, systematically performed after each one of them, ensure that the results will correspond to the expectations.
This method implies an investment well defined in advance.
When the objective and/or the budget are not well defined, it can be judicious to follow the iterative method.
The loop can be stopped at any moment according to variable criteria and/or things unknown at the beginning.
Some activities cannot be led by using a well defined process, or by successive attempts and readjustments. As in hunting, observation and opportune reaction are sometimes the appropriate strategy.
Obviously, working tools can be improved by an appropriate usage of the idle time.
