Design leads the way. This is rare. Really rare. Here, development - the construction company - doesn't make a single move until the design is created, tested, validated, and ideally, refined again. Only once presented to the development group can they give their assessment.
Since almost everyone here is a designer and I, as a developer, find myself most of the times on the other side of the fence, would like to hear your opinions:
- Do you think that's the best approach to the construction process?
- How do you deal with us cold engineers saying "NO" to your carefully designed feature?
- Do you think that iniciatives like 'Hug your Designer' day would help to strenghten the designer-engineer bond?
