Rewarding Lies

In 2006-8, Infosys rubber-stamped an offshore team of 200 with skills they didn't have and delivered some world-class shit software to Boeing.   Boeing eventually reached their breaking point and threatened to cancel the five contracts so Infosys hired me to bail them out.  And I did.  I turned it around,

In 2006-8, Infosys rubber-stamped an offshore team of 200 with skills they didn't have and delivered some world-class shit software to Boeing.   Boeing eventually reached their breaking point and threatened to cancel the five contracts so Infosys hired me to bail them out.  And I did.  I turned it around, restored some confidence, got Boeing calmed down and quality up, etc for a year.

What did Infosys learn from that?   They learned they could KEEP lying and somebody like me would bail them out again.   They wanted me to keep billing Boeing for forty hours a week while working on similar mishaps at Microsoft, Computer Associates, etc, and participate in billing and visa fraud.  So I left.

When you reward lies, you get more lies.

When you reward stupidity, you get more stupidity.

When you punish honesty, you get less of it.
