Note to self: Cost Savings Caveat

I just saw this in someone’s e-mail signature today:

“There is Always a Better, Cheaper, Faster way of doing things.”

What the quote doesn’t mention is that there is always a threshold for pain (or cost or deprivation) for any of the parties who use the process that the better, cheaper, faster method is applied to. I think what’s missing from these equations and goals set by financially driven objectives is a forward looking definition and analysis of impacts of these costs.
