Human Methodologies 2

In another not-so-recent ARCast Lewis Curtis and Brian Derda explain their new methodology Perspective Based Architecture. Now, I’m not an architect and I don’t have any experience with this methodology but I found it an appealing methodology because:
  • The basic idea is indeed very basic (what can be more basic than asking questions?),
  • The architects they intend to force people out of their comfort zone (especially useful to technical specialists),
  • and the questions also encourage people to collaborate (instead of just throwing documents over the wall).
  • They also emphasized that a strict timebox encourages people to prioritize the questions,
  • and be honest when they just don’t know the answer yet.

Again a methodology with a strong social component. In my opinion methods like these have a promising future.
