yes, but when the slippage occurs even though you can blame the dev you have to deliver the news, and justify why they failed.

actually worst PM gig I had boss wanted me (on a late delivery) to tell the client X. Problem was it would mean lying to their faces.
I said, "no."
He said, "OK, expect your resignation letter ASAP." (I think expecting me to back down.)
2 minutes later he had my resignation.
Stupid pricks made me serve my notice. (about 2 weeks (4 weeks less leave), arrive late, long lunch, leave early (usually 5 minutes after getting back from lunch) - punctuated by ms solitair etc.) hmmm, next discussion topic
