Methodology for creating Web services

Does there exist any methodology for creating Web services?
Web services are a set of technologies and standards: XML, SOAP, WSDL, etc. Commonly these technologies are being applied today in an ad hoc project driven fashion with no Web services specific methodology being applied.

Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Enterprise Architecture are mutually reinforcing disciplines that address how IT groups can address system design and team organization to best create more re-usable and survivable systems which break down the traditional application silos.

New methodologies for creating Web services are starting to appear within the context of the move to SOA and Enterprise Architecture. My recommendation is to look for books, training classes, etc., in those two fields and then apply what you learn there to your Web services work.
