neilson -at- windstream -dot- net wrote (regarding requirements analysis):

Creating OO abstractions is not sufficient,
because they are still within the technology framework. Any time that
implementation is put ahead of design, or design ahead of requirements,
the wrong minds are in control.

Richard Lewis responds:

Geepers! There is intellectual life outside of Cleveland! I might also add that Use Cases (the main OO functional requirements elicitation technique) are based on the battle cry: "Forget the "As Is" ! Forward men - into the "To-Be" implementation. !"
