Glad you finished your thought. Couldn't agree more. On my current
agile project we document stuff we know about a story and post it on
a wiki. Our expert users sit feet from us. We've noticed a problem
where the expert user finds out an important piece of information,
then updates the document to include it. Now folks have already read
the document, and don't think to scan it for changes/revisions. At
the end of the iteration when we've missed an important detail, and
can see it right there in the document, our first thought is "why
didn't we just talk about this?" The artifact was present - but gave
folks a false sense of security.
thanks for your post.
