In my current job, I spend most of my time with requirements analysis. So I tell people, "When you want a house, do you give $200,000 to a builder and tell him to build you a house with some bedrooms and bathrooms? No, you go to a general contractor with specifics as to the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, where each will be located, and details such as the color of carpet. The general contractor then makes sure that the house meets your specifications.

I am the general contractor for software.
