    « Is The Call For A Federal CIO/CTO "Reinventing Government" By Another Name? | Main | Reminder: Carnival of Enterprise Architecture #13 Coming December 2, 2008 »

    Fully agree on that one. While contractor has to care about their business there's alway a ghost of "customer is alway right" principle in the backgroud. Unfortunately the bigger the clinet is the more politics is usually involved.

    As a relatively small company we used to exploit the old trick with a bad policeman and a good policeman. We always had a consensus internally whether we believed in schedule and cost, but sometimes when the client expected it'll be cut we told ourselves: OK, we'll try but since that's not something we believe we won't play a blame game if we fail. Of course we had to take the rap and usually it was technical team to do that, but at least internally there was no politics at all and we still had a good policeman (usually sales team) who was able to fix most things with the client.
