My company has just started a new development process that
follows the theory with a few additions.

After the marketing folks write the marketing specs
and the developers write the functional specs,
the tech writers create a prototype of the user interface.

Then representatives from marketing, development,
documentation, quality assurance, training, customer
service, and technical support hold design review meetings.

People get to see what the product will look like, instead
of trying to visualize it from the specs. And, in theory,
everyone agrees on how the product should work and look.
(They speak then or forever hold their peace.)

Then based on the final prototype, SQA writes their
automated testing scripts and the writers write their
manuals and the developers code.
