When I first heard the term “living document” some years ago, I liked the concept. It signified an awareness that in an iterative, incremental development process we should be open to revisiting and revising designs, plans, and schedules. Markets become crowded, technologies emerge, and we learn. Updating strategies to reflect these new circumstances is a reasonable thing to do.
