A quick lesson on the karma of getting and accepting bad estimates from developers, and not communicating:
|Manager:||How long will this take?|
|Developer:||This is very hard, almost impossible. Two-to-four weeks.|
|Manager:||Yikes. Ok. Do what you can. Let me know if you need anything.|
Three days later the conversation resumes ...
|Developer:||Ok, I'm done.|
|Manager:||Uh, great ... wow ... that was quick. Thanks.|
|Developer:||Ok, I'm ready for something else.|
|Manager:||Um, I don't have anything else for you to do right now. I thought you'd be working on that for two-to-four weeks, so I don't have anything else in the pipeline at the moment.|
