My wife is working as a project manager trying organize part of a major govt agency move. She's have trouble with some of her teams on defining terms. Apparently people have very differing ideas on what something being ready means.
I suggested a story to tell at the next meeting where she's trying to sort these guys out. Some time ago I heard an amusing story of how the military defines "securing a building". Apparently the different services view this as meaning anything from getting a lease to turning off the lights and locking the doors to assaulting it with 2 fire teams, repelling all attempts to retake it and using the second floor as FAC position. (No points for guessing who the last ones are).
Does anyone know this story in some semblance of rational order and what everyone does.
