Methodology and Processes are tools to support the project – not the other way around!
We favour lean processes to avoid bureaucracy. Many projects spend considerable time meeting all kinds of formal requirements such as: reports, risk logs (and sometimes precious time is wasted on philosophical discussions about the nature and content of a risk log). Of course some formality is required especially in complex organisational settings, but our philosophy clearly is: less is more.
Also, we are not dogmatic with regards to methodology. In fact we appreciate that agile methods are now well established in the corporate world. Unfortunately, they are often followed dogmatically: is it so important to start every story with ‘The user wants to’? Why have daily stand-ups just because the method says they must be daily? We are only dogmatic about one thing: Formality should support the project and never should projects support formality – at least if you are eager to deliver.
