A selection of a few existing management Antipatterns:

  • Continuous obsolescence - When technology changes so rapidly that the development can't keep up with current versions of the software. WB
  • Design by committee - This antipattern results in a overtly complex system that lacks coherence. This can occur when the design team does not work together in a cohesive manner. WB
  • Golden hammer - When a single technique is applied "obsessively" to software problems. WB
  • Lava flow - Dead and forgotten code that hardens and becomes unchanged as the system develops. Requires a change in development strategy. WB
  • Mushroom management - This occurs when developers are separated from the end users. WB
