Conflict can be a (pun fairly intended) double-edged sword. I've seen meetings where no one has read the preparatory material and go into a meeting blindly accepting everything because they don't have any real insight into the problems at hand. Otoh, I've seen meeting degrade to near fisticuffs when political rivals smash one another's ideas simply because they represent the wrong side of the organization. The trick is to know how much conflict to allow, when to table the conversion, and when to get out the 3' wide fluffy punching gloves so those two can just go somewhere and work out their issues. - Steve http://Twitter.com/GanttGuru

Maybe "complex" is simply becoming a buzzword no one in the marketing department really understands, (ab)used to fluff out product descriptions like XML, cloud-based, and sophisticated.

Adding it to my NetFlix queue, which I ALSO happen to view occasionally on my iPad. Great minds, they say...

Timeless and spot on. It's amazing how often when a project goes awry that one of these items is out of whack.

Listening to conjecture does not accomplish anything. Nor does analysis paralysis. Perhaps the best path is one that accepts either, in moderation.
