Re: Do architects define the software development process?

I tend to find that outlining the benefits such as tackling risk first only works to get pseudo-acceptance.

"Great idea, we'll put that stuff first on the project plan!"

Many people just have a hard time letting go of the idea that the design and schedule must be mapped out in detail before starting.

"Otherwise, how do you know if you're on schedule?"

"It's OK, we can still be agile because we'll have a change management process that lets us modify the design and plan as we go along!"

But they still want to spend enormous amounts of time creating detailed designs and plans up front, in spite of limited information, because they can't let go and "just make it up as we go along".
