*** Quote of the Month ***

The reason that most software developers donít seem to get excited about meeting cost and schedule commitments is that these usually are not team goals. Although management may think that cost and schedule are important, typically no one ever tells the team why these goals are important, and the team isnít involved in making the commitments. As far as typical software teams are concerned, management makes the cost and schedule commitments, and the team meet them if the can. In fact, the team often think that managementís requested commitments are totally unreasonable, but because they are paid to do what management asks, they give it the old school try.
