Lisa Crispin: Collaboration beats tossing code 'over the wall'

Posted by Jeff Bounds on May 20, 2015 at 7:30am 0 Comments

Even though Lisa Crispin does training, coaching and writing about Agile testing, she is not one to rip Waterfall methods.

As we saw in the first part of my two-part interview, Crispin says the Waterfall might work in some circumstances. “If your industry is slow changing and doesn’t require that software-providing new business value be delivered more frequently than every six months or a year, Waterfall could work,” she said.

Although he is a bona fide enthusiast for agile, Hemant Elhence acknowledges that the software development methodology might not work in every situation.
