ABSTRACT
<p>Software system development processes are often misaligned with the challenges faced by development teams. This article proposed a Practitioner's Cycle development approach, which suggests one way of bringing artisanship back into the procurement process. Through incremental, continual interaction with stakeholders, this approach lets developers begin system design and development with cognitive task analysis to understand the current work and then continue investigating the envisioned world as new technologies and work methods are created and tested.</p>
