#112414 - Meeting a Schedule
Responding to: Andy Peters's previous message
Andy Peters said:
[It's not the history graduate that's the problem.
It's the genius with a business degree who doesn't understand technical work.

Unfortunately, in the real world there is always going to be a point at which the management becomes non technical. It is the responsibility of the technical guy immediately beneath this person to make them understand what the technical guys need to do the job and how long it will take.

Nor do these sorts understand that you can't put a schedule on "research and development."

Unfortunately, in the real world, if you want to get paid, you need to make profits and that means things have to happen to a schedule. There is very little R in industry these days, it is far too expensive and risky. Mostly it is D only, which can be managed to a schedule if the right skills are there.
