Amazingly relevant quote

I am finally reading my copy of Code Complete, 2nd Edition. I've had the book for a while, but couldn't get past the first chapter the last time I tried to read it. This time, I skipped the first chapter ;).

Anyway, here's the quote:

We try to solve the problem by rushing through the design process so
that enough time is left at the end of the project to uncover the errors that
were made because we rushed through the design process.

--Glenford Myers

Other than the fact that we ignore the design process, instead of just rushing through it, this quote really applies to my current company.
