Wait, everyone else isn’t panicking. I can fix that.

The entire department is on a Death March.

My group has worked long hours on the project, and has a quite manageable list of open bugs – some of which are eleventh-hour requirements changes. This is not an ideal project, but the primary team is working diligently to address the hot issues, while I’m behind the scenes attempting to convince our business partners that design changes a month prior to rollout are impractical on a project of this scale.

It’s as well under control as possible.

The executives are beginning to panic, which is unhelpful. Sending 7 emails in one day about the bug list is an undesirable and unproductive distraction; it is similar to a child in a car querying parents incessantly, ‘Are we there yet?’
