Each model reflects a common thread of analysis, implementation, and review. As in the graphic for the FADE model, each also has deeper meaning (further levels of analysis) for the headings. Using a methodology ensures that you are not missing any of the critical steps. No one method is best for everyone or all situations.

Pick a method that makes sense to you and follow it.
