comment Is a developer-driven product a good thing?
The bigger problem is that often people think that they are domain experts when they are not. I have seen product managers and CEOs go on about a problem that never existed in the minds of the targeted customers. Of course, these product managers and CEOs didn't spend enough time actually talking to potential customers to discover their pain points.

And the domain expert is sometimes the manager, sometimes the developer, sometimes the CEO, sometimes the product manager, sometimes the customer support person, and sometimes the sales person.
