In addition, we stipulate that a component can take one or several input artefacts, but has only one deliverable. Finally, the interface expresses the method component’s overall goals, representing the method rationale. These goals are used to discuss the rationality resonance possible to achieve during a project with certain characteristics. 2 The Configuration Package Method configuration is mainly about deciding whether or not method components in a base method are to be performed, and to what extent.

When working with MMC, method rationale is more important than the deliverable as such. Through the method rationale it is possible to address the goals that are essential in order to fulfil the overall goal of a specific project. Prescribed actions and artefacts are viewed as means to achieve those goals. Hence, method rationale can help developers not to loose sight of the ultimate result, and also help them find alternative ways forward. The Method Component Interface. The purpose of the interface is to hide unnecessary details during method configuration.

Nielsen Tidd et al. suggest that four types of innovation exist; product innovation, process innovation, position innovation, and paradigm innovation [4]. We take the process for product innovation to include the four activities of searching and selecting ideas, implementation, and learning from the innovation process [4]. The existing literature on product innovation has nothing to say on software development and it is therefore relevant for modern software companies to bring these two different lines of thinking, organizing and working together in a single study.
