Survey Results

How prepared are you at product launch (or major release) time?

Survey period: 7 Nov 2022 to 14 Nov 2022

Time for some brutal honesty here.

Usually everything's well tested, documented, marketing and sales are up to date, and we're ready for any issues6911.75
Most things are under control, but there are the occasional last minute panics23339.69
Generally it's a bit messy. Not everything's fully finished and we're applying duct tape as we roll out of the shop.8915.16
Debacle. Known bugs, missing features, and important functionality simply not complete.183.07
Panic stations. It's never ready. It's never close to being properly ready.61.02
We often don't even have a product at launch time. Just marketing and a fast-talking product manager.40.68
We don't do product launches. It's always incremental11319.25
We don't work on anything that gets 'released' to consumers or organisations.559.37
