Classic Mistakes Updated - 10x Software Development: "New Classic Mistakes

After founding Construx, a decade of work with hundreds of companies has enabled us to identify several new classic mistakes. Here are the additional classic mistakes we've identified:

* Excessive multi-tasking
* Assuming global development has a negligible impact on total effort
* Unclear project vision
* Trusting the map more than the terrain
* Outsourcing to reduce cost
* Letting a team go dark (replaces the previous 'lack of management controls')
