Communication is about sharing and exchanging information.
To deliver a software system the team, consisting of technologists and clients, writes thousands of textual pages of explanations and instructions to understand the requirements. Then, the coding begins; manually, translating the written explanations into coded instructions for the hardware. This creates multiple potentials for errors. The top unintentional sources of error, by far, are:
- misunderstanding of the explanations,
- gaps in the explanations, and
- mistakes made during coding.
Clearly establishing communication as the primary cause of errors.
To minimise errors, we need to establish a better communication approach across software lifecycle.
Despite being taught to communicate via text our entire life, the method that trumps all forms of communication is VISUAL communication.
Instead of writing thousands of pages of text and millions of lines of code, why aren’t we utilising visual communication to converse across the team and then automate the generation of computer instructions to minimise errors?
