Replying to LO1356 --

My own experience is strongly reinforcing of the old adage "make haste
slowly". The modern version of this is "there's never enough time to do
it right, but always time to do it (at least) twice"

My experience and much of what I read suggests that one of the most
certain ways to diminish quality, often with catastrophic results, is to
save time. Organizations that spend a year working on something could
often get better results in three or four days of dedicated, disciplined,
group activity. Case studies prove this.
