Why not to be afraid of 2012

Posted by Jakub Holý on March 12, 2011

You don’t need to be afraid of the foretold end of the world in 2012. To end the world is a big project and I think we can easily compare it to large scale IT projects. Consequently:

  1. Such a large-scale change certainly wont’t be delivered on time. Most likely it will take several times longer, i.e. we can expect it around 2020 earliest.
  2. Anyway it will be necessary to downsize it considerably, so don’t expect a complete destruction of everything to take place.
  3. Most likely the project will be canceled at the end.

So calm down 🙂

PS: I hope they won’t try to go with agile, I wouldn’t appreciate frequent deliveries 🙂

    Well, I’m afraid they follow the agile – at least they have the customer on-site!

  2. I totally agree!
