I think the issue Ryan mentioned with FB is a general issue these past several years with more than just FB's API and documentation. Everyone seems to be more sloppy these days. People call their processes agile, throw in a task manager, throw tasks into it willy nilly, and call that process.

Hiring a tech writer and sending your lead dev to scrum school won't help either. You need to value good work at work. If you're too busy worrying about how to skim by with less money or worried about losing your employees, you're too distracted. Work with fewer people, get less done, but make sure you do it right! Why do people need a primer on this? It is just common sense.
