There's No Excuse

Via DaedTech:

What’s the moral of this story? To me, it’s this: if you have a giant document detailing manual steps for programmers to follow to get something done, what you really have is a spec/user story for your next development cycle. Automate all the things, and then burn those documents at a cathartic, gleeful camp fire. You can turn your onerous processes into roasted marshmallows.

This XKCD is relevant.

And this one.
