Reader Rayne sent me an e-mail (thanks again!) about her experiences with project management. These thoughts led me to a larger set of questions.

There are evidently at least a couple of project management perspectives (I refuse to say, "paradigms") floating around: those that are very process-oriented such as the Capability Maturity Model and those that are focused on quicker results, such as Agile/XP/Scrum. The context of the examples are software development, but the ideas can be extrapolated to any kind of project. So which is best? And for what? And how do I take these processes and apply them to a department of 6 people?

I've got a lot of thinking to do.
