Re: [xml-dev] RE: [Summary #2] Should Subject Matter Experts Dete rmine XML Data Implementations?

In my limited experience, the person with best grasp of the project
and the problem itself, is the main developer.   You don't fully
understand the problem until you are in the middle of developing the
solution, making you best placed in that regard.  And when you present
the options to the decision-maker you give them the implications of
each, in order that they make the right decision (so you tailor the
implications accordingly :)

Often the BAs and PMs are just go-betweens, relaying information
between customers and developers without adding much value inbetween.
Some even have the cheek to put the devs directly in touch with the
customer, and only speak to the devs when they need to report progress
to the management (where the specialise in taking credit during the
good times and offloading blame during the bad).   Letting them make
decisions would be dangerous.
