Requirements and Planning Stuck in the Past

At least once if not more, many of us may have faced the following situation. We download the latest software driver for a device only to find out after installing that it doesn’t work for your hardware. As per the release notes, it should work for your hardware but in reality it does not. We have no choice but to revert back to the earlier… Read More
