You are now a certified, copper-bottomed corporate cynic!
Come on in, the mud is warm and smelly…
I’ve been here a while, and I find the smell comforting.
I love this one. Microsoft did this to three companies I worked for. It cost them all millions, and they didn’t even see it coming.
Objectivity is a politically correct description.
True, too true.
Shame on all those decision makers who still don’t understand TANSTAAFL.
Happened so many times at this one company I worked. They’d decide on a vendor – usually either for our main customer hardware, but on two occasions our outsourcing technical support vendor. They’d promise the moon – of course they couldn’t deliver, and then we’d be left millions in the hole and with a crap reputation. Each time it was obvious in retrospect it would have been better to develop the capabilities in-house; each time we’d go with the next vendor who promised to bail us out. Almost needless to say, the company went under.
never as what they are willing to give you, always ask why.
if you understand from the start that the intent is building dependency, then as long as its kept proper, it can work out. the goal should always be to end the project with you having independent control however.
