in reply to Is guessing a good strategy for surviving in the IT business?

Perhaps if you start with a premise(guess) and you try it, and test it and it succeeds. And then you test it some more, then give it to someone else to test and it still succeeds. Then you give it to a small group of people to test and it continues to succeed, you may be onto something. Then you can start developing you premise(guess) in earnest.

I guess.
