Wisdom: A Software Engineering Method for Small Software Development Companies
September/October 2000 (vol. 17 no. 5)
pp. 113-119
Wisdom is a new software engineering method addressing the specific needs of small teams that develop and maintain interactive systems. Because Wisdom defines a process, notation, and project philosophy, it can smoothly be applied in small companies leveraging on their communication, speed, and flexibility.
