Post Implementation Review
A lot of time, money and energy went into the "project". At times things were difficult but the result was a quality deliverable.
But at the end of the day the thing that most impressed the users bore no resemblance to their original requirements.
85 miles there, 85 miles back, a severely depleted budget and all they want to do is chase an artificial turd down a pipe.
Frankly if you don’t think this is a good analogy for software development then I don’t know what is!
The Lighter Side – Life is like an analogy (David Poole talks about the software development process)
