If it wasn't for the last minute, nothing would get done - June  10, 2015 
If it wasn't for the last minute, nothing would get done."


This quote has a number of sources according to research so it is a little hard to attribute it.  One list said Dilbert, others gave its place in books.

Regardless of where it came from, this is very common in software projects and in Quality Assurance in particular.  It could be a corollary to "Hurry Up and Wait".

Quality Assurance fights against this attitude however,we never want to be last minute and rushing to get things done.  Quality Assurance is all about anticipating what is going to happen, planning for it and then dealing with it in order and as it comes.  There is no 'last minute' in Quality Assurance.  There should be no need to suddenly rush things.  

Concentrate on the anticipation.
