Interesting perspective on development

From Steve McConnell:

He's talking about how mimicking a process or level of commitment does not guarantee success.

"Rather than debating process vs. commitment, we should be
looking for ways to raise the average level of developer and manager
competence. That will improve our chances of success regardless of which
development style we choose."

Mimickry is part of educating managers and employees. Mimicking the behaviour of successful people and attempting to apply it yourself is a great way to succeed. The key is you can't blindly mimick, you must adapt.
