Almost a month ago, we published an article titled Broken Requirements Ecosystem. That article built on a discussion thread at Seilevel. Since that time, the original thread has grown, and a new one has been spawned at the Catalyze site.
In short, the question was asked on the Seilevel forum- why are specs sometimes ignored by developers, and four possible reasons were suggested. We followed up with our view, and the discussion picked up again, this time at Catalyze.
- Original discussion thread on Seilevel’s forum: Reasons Reqs Go Unread (Discussion from 19 Jun to 26 Jun )
- Article at Tyner Blain: Broken Requirements Ecosystem (Written on 21 Jun, Discussion to 26 Jun)
- Thread spawned on the Catalyze forum: Broken Requirements Ecosystem (Discussion from 23 Jun to 15 Jul)
Even if you read our article before, go back and follow the discussions again – starting with Seilevel’s article, and progressing to ours, following up with the conversation at Catalyze.
