Anyone who has been involved in big software programs knows they are fundamentally different than the world of small and startup types of development.  When many hundreds or even thousands of people are brought to bear on a software endeavor, very complex dynamics emerge.  These social dynamics at their core do not lend themselves to simple organizational processes or structures or flavor-du-jour methodologies.  Far more systemic issues come into play including cultural friction, scale, complexity, motivation, and risks, especially those risks related to vendor management.
