I've prepared this text to efficiently process to common currently occurring and related phenomena.

  • The first is the amount of unpaid work I can put in a lead before I must have some payment if I have not decided to do the work on some other basis.

    I am just a single struggling worker so I am forced to spend no more time on a lead than a rational expectation of closing and completing a job indicates is justified. Necessarily there will be some failures and some potential good clients will be lost. I started my professional programming career as a junior employee of a conglomerate that was working as a subcontractor to IBM in the acquisition and award phase of a contract that spanned more than a year.

  • The second is so-called Capability Maturity (CMM) and its antipattern CIMM , which has to do with the reliablity of estimates in CMM Level I situations.
