That's unfortunate because if you buy into any single methodology 100 percent, you'll see the whole world in terms of that methodology. In some instances, you'll miss opportunities


Sigh...even then that wasn't reasonable.
Less so now.

Complexity insures that no one can do everything. Is some company supposed to use 50+ different programming languages just in case they can save a nickel on one method. That of course doesn't account for the problems with supporting that, integrating with it, hiring for it and administering it.

The toolbox metaphor


Certainly does. I have tools in my tool box I have never used. I had one tool that I probably bought 10 years ago and I never even opened the box until this last year. And another tool that I have used no more than 3 times and it failed completely every time at the very task it was supposed to solve.
