Fighting Fires

I have run across this a few times in my career, but with a slightly different twist. With my current team, it doesn’t really happen with the developers (we are pretty conscious about seeing things from each other’s point of view), but it occurs more often with the people in the analysis/support role. They sometimes overreact to something just to be “firefighting” instead of maintaining a stable environment and understanding what is important to the larger set of users.

Still a very good article from the developer perspective.
