It is argued that personality testing and group dynamic
principles could improve the success of development
teams in developing systems by providing a mechanism
for repeatable and valid identification, rating and
selection of stakeholders in the method engineering
process. The method presented, MEWSIC, aims to
formalise the development of situational methods so that
the link to quality assurance processes are retained.
MEWSIC accounts for the number of stakeholders who
have a legitimate interest in the success of the project, but
distinguishes between those who provide input that
informs the method engineering process, those who carry
out this process and their team role types. An overviewof
MEWSIC and a discussion in the need for personality
testing and group dynamic measures is given.
