Beware of Methodologies

Beware of Methodologies

Just came across a fabulous post by Joel Spolsky from back in 2001.

What's the moral of the story? Beware of Methodologies. They are a great way to bring everyone up to a dismal, but passable, level of performance, but at the same time, they are aggravating to more talented people who chafe at the restrictions that are placed on them.
