in thread Is guessing a good strategy for surviving in the IT business?

but many people/managers tend to wait and wait - till the time of decision-making has passed

I did say (with added emphasis): "but only if there is no more time in which to acquire more data."; and, and I know its a subtle point, but failing to make a decision, isn't really a decision :)

It's a fine line (and another decision :), between waiting for more information; and deciding that no more useful information will become available in the time that is left.


With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
