I’ve learned about schedule games from lots of people and projects. Here is the list of acknowledgements, as I remember them. If I left anyone off, please let me know.
We had a discussion of schedule games on the AYE wiki, which helped me remember just how many games there are.
I can’t remember when I first learned about the name of 90 % done. I’m fairly sure it’s already in the literature somewhere. If anyone knows a definitive reference, I’d love to know what it is.
I first heard of Queen of Denial from Benson Margulies.
I’d run into Sweep Under the Rug a bunch of times in my consulting practice, and I think I heard Elisabeth Hendrickson name it.
I think I named Schedule == Commitment. It’s funnier when I talk about it, show the guillotine maneuver and explain commitment. Update: Dave Smith may have had a hand in naming this game back in 1998.
My husband named Chasing Skirts (or We’ll Know Where We Are When We Get There).
If you know of other schedule games, or have heard other references for these games, please let me know.
