10 months into a billing/accounting software project (pre-testing/pre-production)... the CEO(prev a network admin) calls the developers into a meeting:
CEO: We(him and VP) decided that we*re going to move this software into production.
Me: But how can you do that if you haven*t even tested the system.
CEO: Well, Im sure whatever bugs there are, they can be fixed right away.
Sure enough, 2 months after *production* 80% of their clients have left.
