Subject:Can't do without paper? From:Mark Levinson <mark -at- MATIS -dot- INGR -dot- COM> Date:Thu, 6 Jan 1994 08:59:11 IST
Lo and behold as the deadline approached, the manager decided that paper
documentation looked pretty good after all. My department had to drop
everything to ride to the rescue.
** Over here we had the same experience for a different reason. Our managers
returned from a visit to the USA and reported that the market will not
pay thousands of dollars for a product that doesn't include complete
documentation on paper. Are they right?
