Nobody is "untouchable." That's why if all the guerilla review
tactics don't get results the final solution (in some environments
it might be the first thing to do) is to let the product manager
(actually, as I described it, the entire team) know that the
documentation for the product is pretty much done but it's not
getting released because it hasn't been properly reviewed and/
or verified and the reviewers and testers have become the
critical path to product delivery and everybody's on-time
completion bonuses.

I see. Isn't the product manager going to be interested in a defective
product being delivered to customers? Are you saying that the tech support
manager is untouchable?
