Take Away:

We can't do this proposed project.

KB100352

Grunt Programmer to Lead Programmer:

We can't do this proposed project. **CAN NOT**. It will involve a major design change and no one in our team knows the design of this legacy system. And above that, nobody in our company knows the language in which this application has been written. So even if somebody wants to work on it, they can't. If you ask my personal opinion, the company should never take these type of projects.

Lead Programmer to Project Manager:

This project will involve a design change. Currently, we don't have any staff who has experience in this type of work. Also, the language is unfamiliar to us, so we will have to arrange for some training if we take this project. In my personal opinion, we are not ready to take on a project of this nature.

Project Manager to 1st Level Manager:

This project involves a design change in the system and we don't have much experience in that area. Also, not many people in our company are appropriately trained for it. In my personal opinion, we might be able to do the project but we would need more time than usual to complete it.

1st Level Manager to Senior Level Manager:

This project involves design re-engineering. We have some people who have worked in this area and others who know the implementation language. So they can train other people. In my personal opinion we should take this project, but with caution.

Senior Level Manager to CEO:

This project will demonstrate to the industry our capabilities in remodeling the design of a complete legacy system. We have all the necessary skills and people to execute this project successfully. Some people have already given in-house training in this area to other staff members. In my personal opinion, we should not let this project slip by us under any circumstances.

CEO to Client:

This is the type of project in which our company specializes. We have executed many projects of the same nature for many large clients. Trust me when I say that we are the most competent firm in the industry for doing this kind of work. It is my personal opinion that we can execute this project successfully and well within the given time frame.

Too dang funny!

My friend, Marilyn, brought this article to my attention. She said she laughed all the way through.  So did I.

The sad thing is that there's way too much truth in there.  Glad that doesn't happen here.

Oh, I have never been down this path before. {#banghead}

Not only will the grunt programmer be pushed to complete it on time and under budget, but they will receive a $25 gift card for a job well done.
