Initially System Metaphor was included as one of twelve practices of Extreme Programming (XP) to facilitate participants’ common understanding and description of the problem under consideration. However, the practice was removed in the second version of XP as practitioners found it difficult to understand, devise and link it to implementation activities. This poster describes how a metaphor can be constructed and linked to development by using practices associated with Soft Systems Methodology (SSM). Initial, positive, feedback from an educational exercise is presented.
