Talking Clocks

We have a set of clocks counting down the time until our next big milestone, one where all the testers are, one by the devs, and one by PM. I just noticed that they tell a story:

  1. PM reaches the end of the milestone first;
  2. Dev reaches it next;
  3. And Test reaches it last

Isn't that how it always seems to be when it comes to software development?
