Federal customer. Major project. Big inexperienced team. Tight deadlines.
Everyone knows that it is possible to perform a large task, dividing it into smaller subtasks - "to eat an elephant, divide it into small pieces."
Is it possible to start development without the completion of the survey and collection of requirements? How to parallel develop several connected components of the system? How to organize a team? What methods and tools to use to get a workable product eventually`?
I will share practical advice and approaches that help when you need to divide the elephant (or your project) and also assembled it.
