“Government development focuses more on gathering comprehensive requirements up front, issuing a contract for the work, and managing the contractor during the buildout,” says McCall. “This ‘big bang’ approach typically means longer development time with little to no customer validation. If requirements do change over time, it is usually driven by competing organizational interests rather than customer needs, which makes it very easy to get away from understanding if what is being built is actually useful or relevant any more.”

While many startups fake their way to success, large corporates can not risk their reputation. Do you know large corporates that had the guts to run experiments by faking demand or supply? (startup dating example: http://alltopstartups.com/2014/04/04/tinder-growth-hacking-strategies/)
