On Pitfalls of Software Product Development

Software product development teams – and people in general - commonly over-estimate their ability to convey information in documents, diagrams, and in discussions. To make matters worse, they typically have too much faith in the validity of their personal mental models to frame the problems that need to be solved. As a result, misinterpretations often remain undetected for months, milestones are missed, and deliverables don’t meet expectations. Many failures are avoidable by recognising the role of customers - and of communication and collaboration - in software product development.
