( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
I personally work for a small startup ( VERY SMALL ), and even in small companies this type of thing happens.

A perfect example is the project we are currently working on. Even with 2 programmers, there are a number of steps that we have to go through to code up and running.

Get the project description.

Write some code

Have the results rviewed for changes ( and for some reason, 90% of the time major "oh, can you add this" additions occur )

Write more code, and rewrite/change 50% of code

Get reviewed again

write more code... and rewrite more code

Get reviewed again

HTML guy takes over ( all code we produce is templated , other then table internals ect )

Make a ton of changes for HTML guy

Reviewed again, now with the HTML

write more code...

It goes on and on...

It seems to me , no matter how big or small the company, an inordinate amount of time is spent developing the project compared to actually developing the code.
