More seriously, understanding the importance of gathering requirements. Too many engineers turned managers put too much emphasis on actual coding. It's very important to have a good idea (say 80% accurate) idea of what you want to do before you start to do it. A great programmer knows how to question the requirements set before him when they don't make sense without alienating the stakeholders.
