After Red

After Red

We’ll catch that after Red.

As in, after the dreaded and infamous Red Team review, about which the less said the better.

As we charge hard to make a deadline, even for review, it’s tempting to defer changes and corrections to what seems like an expansive period of ample time for everything “after Red.”

As Seth points out here, fixing stuff late in the day is the hardest, most expensive time to do it. As I point out here, this also applies in Proposal Land, especially to necessary standardization.

Got typos? Fix ’em after Red.

Got solution and terminological and graphical inconsistencies? Fix ’em soonest. Better yet, put the planning and coordination effort in at the beginning to prevent them.
