Business Consulting For The 21st Century Via A Holistic & Intelligent Approach

The importance of defining business needs

Answered => “What are some popular myths in software development?” on Quora.

http://www.quora.com/What-are-some-popular-myths-in-software-development

=> My answer…

That giving the stakeholders what they want is the same as developing what the business needs.

The truth is, there are plenty of “failed” development efforts because of this. Stakeholders are notorious for (allegedly) being too busy to communicate their wants, let alone their needs. IT is notorious for not asking the right questions as well as having the capabilities to interpret answers in a way that parses fuzzy wants from tangible biz needs.
