Project Lifecycle Cartoon

While this is intended to be funny, it's a little too close for comfort in many cases. But due diligence up-front VOC (voice of the customer) needs assessment interviews, and a subsequent translation into well-formed and reconciled SMART (1, 2) [Specific, Measurable, Achievable/Attainable, Realistic/Realizable, Traceable/TimeBounded] Requirements, along with an ongoing Risk Log, would have made this a very boring cartoon. A lesson we would be well advised to remember in many contexts.
