That can be very true, the problem is I think.. most times ppl.
don't understand or thoroughly understand the whole project until
at least half the prottype is ready to be shown to the
upper management to gain approval/critisims/suggestions. Sometimes
developing the project can be half the battle of a project.. Fastolfe
is right about a Project Manager - it does help. It leaves
the project leads and other developers free to do their job and allow
the administrative tasks to be handled by someone else who
is outside of the project development(coding that is..), but
who understands what the project must do.. they sometimes
can also coordinate with the clients to gain feedback or be
the main person of contact via the developers.
But, knowing the project and developing it to specs(no matter
how many versions down the road) takes quite a bit of time - and
communication is really key.
