Projects: from start to finish

Who can relate to this cartoon? It's my slightly modified version from project cartoon.


How the customer explained it

How the project leader understood it



How the analyst designed it

How the programmer wrote it



What the beta testers received

How the business consultant described it



How the project was documented

What operations installed



When it was delivered

How it was supported



After it was launched

The disaster recovery plan



What marketing advertised

What the customer really needed



The open source version

How the customer was billed


If only things could be different.

I agree with your modifications except for the open source photo. Ideally the open source version is like that.
