Ah yes. A common understanding of 'how the business works' shared amongst the buyers, designers, coders, testers. Oh those cross cultural misunderstandings. The very impossibility of writing downs requirements for every screen widget, meaning of every label, expectations behind every button...without a common understanding based on common experience you're writing thousands of pages.

Note to Bob: Thousands of pages of requirements without context, each easy to implement by someone who has no idea what the solution is for. Kafka was a prophet -- see my coming post, "everything I know about software I learned via literary criticism".
