1. Avoid Analysis Paralysis
2. Question Every Decision
3. Bring in the Outliers

The Prototyping Model of SDLC is nothing but Points 1 & 2. We in our projects follow them a lot. Putting down something that is understood gives a good relief and comfort. This model believes in ‘do-review-do’ procedures, highly effective and gives visibility.

The 3rd one is totally unacceptable. Its like creating a mess to clear-up the mess?
