Politics: where absolutely anything is OK as long as the right team does it.


Finally my boss has ordered that our team start from scratch and build software with minimal functionality initially and then build on it.
This is after 3 months of haggling, groping with daylight saving time related bugs, and many attempts to repair and enhance a system whose parts were being held together by chewing gum.

Sad part is - he wants me to write the spec and not show it to the customer (what a bright spark). Did I forget to say that the spec was never written and neither was any vision document, biz plan or for that matter even an issue list.

I must start writing articles on coconut herd management; nothing else could bring some light into this beleaguered team.
I didnt post this anywhere because I want to have some excruciating details from you guys who've been through this earlier.
