Working Backwards

Posted October 10, 2007

On my evening's ramble 'round the web, I found a link to Werner Vogels' post titled "Working Backwards."

Basically stated, when he's working on defining a new product, he starts with the press release, and works his way backwards through a FAQ and user manual.  Then they actually get around to building it.

It's roughly analogous to BDD/TDD software development techniques.

Anyone out there do something similar when coming up with products?
