Crystal Orange Web

Crystal Orange Web differs from Crystal Orange in that this methodology does not deal with a single project but with a continuous stream of initiatives that require programming and with each initiative's results being merged with the growing code base being used by the public.

This methodology is a bit more formal than Alistair Cockburn's Crystal Clear.

The situation was interesting for a second reason (the first being the continuous and criss-crossing web of demands from different customer groups). The company had already established a Web presence. It was no longer driven by time-to-market pressures but was beginning to feel pressures imposed by the cost of defects. Customer calls, arriving in exponentially increasing volumes, could easily negate profit margins. Thus, the company was shifting from productivity to defect freedom as its top priority.
