"We can't do this proposed project. ** CAN NOT **.
It will involve a Major design change and no one in our team knows the
design of this legacy system. And above that, nobody in our company knows the

others who know the implementation language. So they can train other people.
In my personal opinion we should take this project, but with caution."
Senior Level Manager to CEO:
"This project will demonstrate to the industry our capabilities in remodeling the design of a complete legacy

large clients. Trust me when I say that we are the most competent firm
in the industry for doing this kind of work. It is my personal opinion
that we can execute this project successfully and well within the given
