Also referred to as non-linear development, chaos development is a concept explaining that it is possible to get random results from normal developers, and indeed situations. The main precept behind this theory is the underlying notion of small occurrences significantly affecting the outcomes of seemingly unrelated events.
"Our company uses the chaos theory of development in it's software life cycle. We believe in reinventing the wheel, because our management team is just smarter than the caveman that first invented it."
