◼ Obama Panics, Throws Bodies At Obamacare Disaster - AJ Strata
There is a rule of thumb in SW projects, which becomes a scientific law of physics when it is applied to large SW projects for the government. President Obama is about to repeat a huge mistake made by HHS/CMS on the Obamacare Website leading up to its disastrous debut.
Obama is going to throw a lot of bodies at a huge problem – and make matters ten times worse...
The problems must be enormous., This proves the in-house CMS team that pretended to be the system integrator is still in over their head, and this will takes months to fix now that they had to bring outsiders. [Hint: the best place to figure out what went wrong and how to fix it is to find all those disillusioned experts who left or were pushed out for being 'too pessimistic' prior to the debut - they were right you know]
This is all desperation by the administration. It is not the first time this stunt has been tried, but the result is ALWAYS the same. More delays. Bringing in an army of outsiders just added weeks and weeks to Obamacare fixes. The rule of thumb is called Brook’s Law:
Brooks’s law is a principle in software development which says that “adding manpower to a late software project makes it later”.This has now become Extreme Amateur Hour
