Has this ever happened to you? After weeks of analysis you have identified the appropriate solution to the problem and have identified and mitigated the primary risks. You have a discussion with your Tech Lead and, after answering a couple of questions, she runs with it. You just moved on to the next item of business when the lead returns with the finished product. There’s only one problem: it doesn’t work as you had planned. Perhaps there’s another scenario, one in which the stakeholder tells you you’ve done it wrong. What happened in each of these cases? How can we prevent this from happening in the future?
