‘No’ Is An Unlimited Resource Redux

Remember, ungentle reader, I have pointed out that ‘no’ is an unlimited resource.

At Practical QA, Linda Wilkinson goes into greater detail about the importance of not screwing up your project by urinating submissively and agreeing to whatever your client wants. Although she doesn’t use the submissive urination metaphor, to the piece’s ultimate detriment.

Her topic paragraph:

If someone were to ask me what I think is the number one problem facing IT today, I’d say it was the inability to say “no”. Not specifications, not offshoring, not lack of technical talent, not lack of jobs, and not any single type of project methodology.

Well, IT doesn’t have a blanket no, really, since it just says no to QA too well.
