Programmer to Team Leader:
"We CAN NOT do this proposed project. It will involve a major design
change and no one in our team knows the design of this system. And
above that, nobody in our company knows the language in which this
application has been written. If you ask my personal opinion, the company should
never take these type of projects."
Team Leader to Project Manager:
"This project will involve a design change. Currently, we don't have
Any staff who has experience in this type of work. Also, the language is
unfamiliar to us, so we will have to arrange for some training if we
take this project. In my personal opinion, we are not ready to take on a
project of this nature."
Project Manager to 1st Level Manager:
"This project involves a design change in the system and we don't have
Much experience in that area. Also, not many people in our company are
appropriately trained for it. In my personal opinion, we would need
more time than usual to complete it."
1st Level Manager to Senior Level Manager:
"This project involves design re-engineering. We have some people who
Have worked in this area and others who know the implementation language. So
they can train other people. In my personal opinion we should take
this project, but with caution."
Senior Level Manager to CEO:
"This project will demonstrate to the industry our capabilities in
remodelling the design of a complete legacy system. We have all the
necessary skills and people to execute this project successfully. Some
people have already given in house training in this area to other
staff members. In my personal opinion, we should not let this project slip
by us under any circumstances."
CEO to Client:
"This is the type of project in which our company specializes. We have
executed many projects of the same nature for many large clients.
Trust me when I say that we are the most competent firm in the industry
For doing this kind of work. It is my personal opinion that we can
Execute this project successfully and well within the given time frame."
