RANT: You know the deadline is approaching fast when...

...your boss came to you and asked if you need more resources for the analytics development.

What's ironic is that in this parituclar case it actually slows down development due to the added communication overheads. Or as they say: It takes one woman nine months to have a baby. It cannot be done in one month by impregnating nine women (although it is more fun trying).
