On reuse within IT. I seem to be talking about this a lot so .. might as well put this down.

IMHO, I break reuse within IT into the following stages :

Stage 0 : Reuse teams (just this gets you 60% of the way)
Stage 1 : Reuse design patterns (typically effected by having a clearly articulated architecture and some governance frameworks). This however, may be a legacy of waterfall methodologies.
Stage 2 : Reuse software (libraries, SOA, components etc.)

I can't agree more. However reuse of the experience/best practices of a developer or technology community can also give great results. This can give access to code or standards not available in the enterprise software library or not knowm to the team.
