Meeting Promised Development Dates

If you have worked in or with the software industry at all, you have lived through some dramatic delays in product development. For instance, Product Guernsey, originally announced last year, was due in January. It's now the beginning of June, and it's announced that the product, now called Providence, won't be out until September. Or your last major release was supposed to take nine months. A year later, it won't be out for another nine, so technically the team has worked for a year but it's twelve months late.
