And the seasons they go round and round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We’re captive on the carousel of time
We can’t return we can only look
Behind from where we came
And go round and round and round
In the circle game

Joni Mitchell, The Circle Game

The lure of cheap development is seductive. Product owners want it faster, cheaper, and yesterday. But the cost to a small development group is the distraction of finding, qualifying, and then managing these resources.  That’s the very time that is precious for delivering a project already well underway. So we go round and round in the circle game.
