Never assume information finds its way 22:55 on Wednesday

Let’s say we work for the company FezDesign, on a project for the company GadgetMakerz. FezDesign has sold a great Flash Application to GadgetMakerz, and we are to do the actual work of coding that app.

Lesson of the day:

Any information we have given to FezDesign concerning the development of the project — features, constraints, restraints, risks, requirements, anything — has to be communicated again as soon as new stakeholders get involved in the project.

Never assume the essential information automatically gets to the people who need to know.

    Another great day at work, perhaps?

    Well, nothing went wrong. Just noticed this would be a good pattern for avoiding misunderstandings later on…
