Dr. Dobb's Modeling, Specification, and Documentation Survey 2008

July 15, 2008

It's survey time again and Dr. Dobb's senior contributing editor Scott Ambler has put together a really interesting one this time around.

Although IT project teams invest significant time and effort around these activities, very little is actually known about what occurs in practice. Our hope with this survey  (click here to begin) is to find out exactly this.

The goal of this survey is to determine what is actually occurring on IT projects when it comes to modeling, specification, and documentation.

As in the past, Scott will summarize the results in his column in an upcoming issue of Dr. Dobb's. The survey should take about five minutes to complete and to help make it worth your while Scott will be selecting three survey participants at random to win their choice of one of his recent books.

Thanks in advance for your assistance and participation. If you haven't done so yet, click here to start the survey.
