    [Brian] If being friends with a janitor is sign of doom for a software project … then it sounds like the problem isn’t with the project, but rather, the people running it.

    The implication is that if you’re constantly staying late enough to see the janitor regularly, you have problems. It’s not a statement on the janitor’s position or worth; knee hit the underside of the table much?

    *You start hiring consultants so they can take the blame
    *Ever iteration meeting starts with “Do you want the good news or the bad news…”
    *Every milestone ends in a dead sprint
    *Your manager insists that you track all activity but never uses the information to make decisions

    What that means is, I’m a DBA, and I found most of these relevant to that work, too.

    Ha ha, I liked the second one : “You start hiring consultants so they can take the blame.” Now, isn’t that like so true? The minute we see a whole lot of consultants come in, we know something’s gone wrong. Either we’re all going to lose our job, or we’re looking at some way of shifting the blame for why things have gone so horribly bad. Loved the Napkin as well – that was too funny.
