Justify This

I could take or leave Dilbert for the most part, but the strip this past Sunday was especially meaningful for those of us in charge of managing web change and scope requests on the web.

One thing I do not miss from my advertising agency web days are justifying change requests and change of scope documents that needed signed off on by 4 or 5 people, but only after we argued about the cost of such changes. We have our own idiosyncrasies in higher ed, but its often still not as bad as the private sector.
