Welcome to Techniques in Practice
I have worked on diverse projects combining people, business objectives and technology.
During my career I have seen many techniques (methodologies, technologies, tools) arrive on the scene, grow to a crescendo of hype, and then give way to the next hot thing. Sometimes, but not always, leaving behind a useful residue. My own approach has always been to use a dose of common sense and try to apply what works in practice. This approach of course has its own adjective - prag-ma-tic - which has itself become a buzzword!
This occasional blog is an attempt to relate useful case studies, from real experience, of this praxis.
Where relevant I will also mention other sources of information (principally books, articles and blog posts) that I consider to be genuinely useful in this regard.
The Useful Links page is updated every so often, and contains links to articles and resources which have found particularly helpful - plus a note about why I found them so.
