"Cheat Sheet" for PowerBuilder/PFC "Help"

Status Report Interpretation Guide

via my Wonderful and Totally Amazing Mentor, Judy Cote

Essentially Complete Half done
Schedule Exposure Slipped three weeks ago
We Predict We hope to God
Screen Design is lagging Not a single screen exists
Risk is high but acceptable 100 to 1 odds, or with 10 times the budget and headcount we stand a 50/50 chance
Potential Show stopper All team members have updated their resumes
Serious but not insurmountable problems It’ll take a miracle
Basic agreement, however The beepers won’t talk to us
Results are being quantified We’re massaging the numbers so that they’ll agree with our conclusions
Task force to review 7 people who are incompetent at their regular jobs have been loaned to the project
Not well defined Nobody’s thought about it
Not well understood Now that we think about it, we don’t want to think about it anymore
Requires further analysis Totally out of control and management attention
A number of fixes have been identified The whole team is shooting up
Results are encouraging Power-on produced no smoke
Less than expected Abend again
A high risk project No way we can make it
Impact being determined Where the heck are we?
Aggressive milestone Manager’s dreaming again
No contingency Cancel vacations, kiss the family goodbye,
bring a change of underwear to work with you
