    More practical words:
    1. Are all your timesheets and invoices up to date?
    2. Have you found the weakest member of the team who can be blamed/sacrificed?
    3. Have you filled your shared calendar with fake job interviews?
    4. Have you created/hacked the issues spreadsheet to make it unusable?
    5. Graphs. Pie charts. Lots of them. As meaningless as possible.

    Just come off a migration where all the quality gates were busted by issues being down graded by Group. The status report showed Red for most of the time but then went Green as the delivery was handed over, the fallout this morning to the company has been severe but no heads will roll
    Tis the new Project Delivery model of hold the date rather than hold the service

    Relax, nobody is going to die.

    Unless, well, they might.

    Close to standard practice these days. Management report what their bosses want to hear, unless they can find an obvious way to blame a different department/company.

    Just add "Production Testing" to the plan then point at it if anything goes wrong.
