Great commentary! I had a good laugh. I guess I chose to laugh instead of cry… Seriously, I’ve seen some of this, but fortunately not all.
Edit 10/19/06: Unfortunately I had to shrink down the picture a bit, because it was crowding out my blog’s sidebar. If you can’t read the subtitles here they are, from top to bottom, left to right:
1st row: How the customer explained it, How the Project Leader understood it, How the Analyst designed it, How the Programmer wrote it, How the Business Consultant described it
2nd row: How the project was documented, What operations installed, How the customer was billed, How it was supported, What the customer really needed
