The illusion of understanding
Its not simply the communication of requirements that is the issue but the subsequent understanding of requirements that leads to miscommunication and wasted resource. I have observed many projects struggling through the lack of information translation. A key hindrance to cohesive working is ‘Change’ and the translation of the impact of that change across all key stakeholders to ensure yet again there is a cohesive understanding and practical agreement on the new objective. Communication is key but translation of that communication is the doorway to understanding requirements more fully and stripping away inessential practises/systems/resources.
