Two sure fired ways to succeed in software development

Steve Baty pointed me in the direction of the excellent article on Agile Product Design, Twelve emerging best practices for adding UX work to Agile development.

In the same vein as my last post, How to create better products? Say no by default, I was particularly taken by the two pieces of advice for success in software development:

  1. Start sooner
  2. Build less software

Obviously this is rather glib and simplified, but how often is simple overlooked in favour of the complex. The article is excellent and well worth a read.
