This unit focuses on the methodologies used by industry practitioners for information systems development. A methodology in this context is a collection of techniques that are brought together, with an overall philosophy. A range of techniques will be covered along with several contemporary methodologies, including blended methodologies (SSADM), rapid development methodologies (James Martin's RAD), organisational-oriented methodologies (SSM) and people-oriented methodologies (ETHICS). An evaluation approach will be presented to provide a framework where any methodology can be assessed for its suitability in a given situation.
