The Living Spec Story

Keeping software specifications current and effective for collaboration has become even more challenging with the large number of tools teams use. Technology changes rapidly but the way we create specs stagnates.

We are a team of software engineers, managers, and consultants with substantial experience building consumer and enterprise software. We have become increasingly frustrated with the status quo of how companies collaborate, document specs, and make decisions.

After facing the same painful spec documents for over a decade, we channel our frustrations into Living Spec - a product that offers teams modern specs with the information and tools you need to bring your work together.
