If you've ever worked on a software development project under a time crunch, then you may have heard the phrase "mythical man month." This phrase will often get uttered by a well-read team member when presented with a business stakeholder who wants to throw more bodies at the project to make it go faster. As often as the concept comes up, it never really lives beyond my under-the-breath mutterings. I tend not to share it with clients. Because how do you explain the “mythical man month” to Mr. CEO In A Hurry?
A manager had a problem. He thought to himself, "I know, I'll solve it with more programmers"...
