WELCOME to Tuesday October 22, 2013.
How Communication “Twists” in a company.
Engineer to Team Leader:
“We can’t do this proposed project. It will involve a major design change and no one in our team knows the design of this system. And above that, no body in our company knows the formulation in which this application has been written. So even if somebody wants to work on it, they can’t. If you ask my personal opinion, the company should never take these type of projects.”
Team Leader to Project Manager :
“This project will involve a design change. Currently, we don’t have any staff who has experience in this type of work. Also, the language is unfamiliar to us, so we will have to arrange for some training if we take this project. In my personal opinion, we are not ready to take on a project of this nature.”
Project Manager to General Manager :
“This project involves a design change in the system and we don’t have much experience in that area. Also, not many people in our company are appropriately trained for it. In my personal opinion, we might be able to do the project but we would need more time than usual to complete it.”
General Manager to Vice President :
“This project involves design re-engineering. We have some people who have worked in this area and others who know the implementation language. So they can train other people. In my personal opinion we should take this project,but with caution.”
Vice President to CEO :
“This project will demonstrate to the industry our capabilities in remodeling the design of a complete legacy system. We have all the necessary skills and people to execute this project successfully. Some people have already given in house training in this area to other staff members. In my personal opinion, we should not let this project slip by us under any circumstances.”
CEO to Client :
“This is the type of project in which our company specializes. We have executed many projects of the same nature for many large clients. Trust me when I say that we are the most competent firm in the industry for doing this kind of work. It is my personal opinion that we can execute this project successfully and well within the given time frame.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a great Tuesday people, and whatever you do, don’t forget to LAUGH IT UP! Peace I am outta here, Eucman!

Answer: The Usual Suspects! No spoilers here for those who haven’t seen the film. Suffice it to say that this 1995 film about the exploits of five career criminals is full of enough twists and turns to make one’s head spin, thanks to an Academy Award-winning script by Christopher McQuarrie, top-notch directing by Bryan Singer, and superb acting by the entire cast — including Kevin Spacey, whose character speaks this final line in the film.
