The 24-Hour Knowledge Factory is a software development paradigm that goes beyond the conventional global delivery model. It involves round-the-clock operations through the establishment of three or more development teams around the globe. Complex projects are iteratively broken down into simpler modules, with a "composite persona" (CP) being responsible for each of such modules. Developers around the globe work during day hours only; and the unfinished work is handed off to the next CP driver. The 24-Hour Knowledge Factory concept integrates advances in business processes and IT to provide a greater level of agility and efficiency.
