Pinned topic What is the right development process for a one member "team" ???

‏2010-08-09T06:36:49Z |
Hi All, I've read a lot about Agile Methodologies for software development, SCRUM, XP, KanBan, AUP, and so on. All the methodologies include the definition of a team which can range from less than 10 members (scrum) to large teams (30+). But, what if you are developing a software where the only team member is you. What method to choose? ¿Scrum because there are few artifacts and roles and that let you be the Product Owner, Scrum Master and developer at the same time? ¿Do you need to follow strictly a methodology? or ¿is better A task list, a schedule and a lot of courage? ¿It's correct to think in play different roles for the same project?

I'll appreciate your comments.

    A well known and reliable author showed how RUP or OpenUP could be effectively tailored down for a team of one for a one week project. I'm on vacation, but others might post the author.
