Whoever invented "FastTrack" had complete disregard for the fact that HASTE MAKES WASTE.
OH, IT WILL ALL COME OUT IN THE WASH.

Fast track or Pride in workmanship: a thing of the past?
Depends on who is paying, what they are paying / wanting as end product, and the time frame...

Quality
Cheap
Fast
Pick two.... and forget the third.

It seems to be a Catch-22, where haste makes waste, and hesitation is devastation. Finding the balance between the two is the key to a good project, pre-planning, critical path thinking.... :roll:
