In order to successfully control development in a small-scale engineering firm, a middle ground between the formal-methods utilized in large organizations and the ad-hoc approach used by many start-ups must be found. The key to finding this middle ground is to understand the strengths of the small-company and mold the process around those strengths. This paper takes the reader through the process of creating a development methodology that has proven extremely successful for one small…
