Iteration is not design
Todd Olson

I worked for 30 years in Software development and then for 9 years in database design. I always started with a simple prototype design regardless of how complex the initial user requirements were. This prototype was pushed out to the users as soon as possible and after many iterations we arrived at an acceptable (initial) system. Using this method any bad design will get identifies and discarded asap. 
I wring my hands with despair when I see a ‘finished’ system released on an unsuspecting user, only to see it crash and burn with costs to the user running into billions. Notable failures are the Grand Design IT projects which have cost the UK so dearly.
