I work for one of those fancy startups. Everything is chaos all the time, you have all these extremely smart people in the small doing actually kinda dumb things in the large. This worked better when the company was small and is causing more and more problems as we grow. Anyway, the point being that there’s lots of smart individuals and little process.

I mentioned this during a meeting with my team, and so a process was devised for the next project we embarked upon. The process was waterfall, except nobody referred to it that way (most of the people are like 25, and weren’t working back when it was the norm). Everything old is new again.

It wasn’t important anyway; we didn’t follow the process.
