But that luxury isn't about to happen. We live in a market
where waiting to release a product for any amount of time
after it's finished would put us behind competitors. Or would
put us behind fast-advancing customer needs.
I don't know about luxury. It's a pain half the time because we had to go back and retest, rework, recheck everything. And trying to write requirements from a finished product? Was not fun. Believe me. Mostly the questions were, "Well, crap, we are on version 2, we need this for version 1, what were the requirement changes?"
