Actually, they do, very much! 

Stupid == Cost Effective --> Good Bottomline --> Large Bonus to 

The Holy Grail of software delopment is to be able to have a few 
"architects"  specify in suffiecient detail so the "builders" (i.e. 
Trained Monkeys) can produce completed applications; 

The problem is of course that one spend soo much time "specifying" that 
by the time the "monkeys" could possibly do the job, it is already 90% 
done (Then Management spend another 100% on getting the "monkeys" to 
implement the remaining 10% witout messing up the rest ;-). 

Unfortunately, that's what keep Management busy & happy - and if it 
worked for Henry Ford 100 years ago, then it has better be made to work 
for software too.
