As I manage my department, and I am asked for the status, the cost justifications, and the time frame of various projects, there is one truism that I find myself having to explain to folks.
When you have something broken, or a project you want completed, remember these words…
“Fast, Cheap, or Right. Pick two.”
If you want it done right, and done now, it ain’t gonna be cheap.
If you want it done right, and done cheap, it ain’t gonna be done now.
If you want it done fast and cheap, IT AIN’T GONNA BE RIGHT.
