We propose a three stage method development life cycle. The requirements engineering phase consists of elicitation and representation of method intentions, the design phase produces the architechture of the method and the construction phase consists of organizing method features in a coherent whole. We concentrate in this paper on the Design and Construction phases of the life cycle. We explaion our notion of method architecture and organization and illustrate them. Finally we show the relevance of method architecture and organization in SME. The design and consturction engineering phases of our life cycle are illustrated for a small SME example.
