From the Mythical Man-Month (quote from my XP Paper
One always has, at every stage in the [iterative] process, a working system. I find that teams can grow much more complex entities in four months that they can build.
... one of the most promising of the current technological efforts, and one which attacks the essence, ... is the development of approaches and tools for rapid prototyping of systems as part of the iterative specification of requirements. (Brooks 199-201)
