Summary

Big Design Upfront was considered so evil in the early days of Agile that it acquired its own acronym. But absent the careful thinking of good designers, our systems turn out to be mediocre collections of stuff that customers asked for or the data showed was desirable. It’s time we relearned that great products start with asking the right questions.
