Not the fault of the waterfall methodology.
What went wrong here is that there was a problem in the design but they continued working when they should have waited for clarifications.

Waterfall methodology is best when you know what is needed and how it should be done. They're just renewing an old system, and hopefully, they had documentation of its features...

Besides, with the multi-tier contractor setup, any other methodology would compound on the overhead too much. It was already bad enough that the primary contractor took a week to respond to inquiries.

@RecycledCabbage no, this is about the implementation of the waterfall method. Obviously the planning in this project is poorly executed (with massive changes in design and related things). So this is not the fault of the waterfall, but the company itself, taking the planning section of the waterfall method lightly.

@TetraSky This is Japan after all, bushido forbids admitting you're not up to the task, so the customer can treat their sub-contractor like trash. Not a very healthy corporate culture.

Either the perspective is really off in the top panel of Page 8 or Senpai is a giant.

No response for a week? Ridiculous... if you subcontract another company, you damn well should make sure of everything they do so they don't waste not only their time, but your money as well since you're the ones paying them. Failure to provide adequate details on the job and introducing such a long delay before anyone even bother to contact the subcontractor... all the while keeping the original timeline... Yeah no, they can be sued for that or just plain abandoned while still having to pay up for wasted time.

@DeProgrammer Every year...

I've come to the conclusion that programming is a really young profession, but only because of our absolute inability to learn from our mistakes.

I somehow thought it was a good idea to finish editing this chapter in one sitting while battling a fever, and with midsems and assignment deadlines just around the corner. Picture related.
