To Plan or Not to Plan (spoiler alert: We Do)

The importance of an creating an overarching technical plan at the beginning of a project is often debated. Based on past experience, it isn't always created at the outset of a project, if at all. Sometimes seen as a barrier to just getting things done, other times relegated to Semantics Hell (a useful delaying tactic), the technical specification is an often misunderstood document. At its core, it provides a central document for all stakeholders to reference which details the project’s design and functionality, helps the project avoid scope creep, and keeps all parties on task and on budget.
