Limitations of Written documents

From Jeff Sutherland’s “Scrum Handbook”

“A written document is an incomplete picture of my ideas; when you read it, you create another abstraction, which is now two steps away from what I think I meant to say at that time.”

I think I will have a hard time convincing my management to get rid of written specs completely, but thinking of them in terms of abstraction layers is increadibly useful.
