There is a silver bullet

"There's no silver bullet"
-Fred Brooks

So goes one of the most beloved quotes of computer programmers. There's only one problem: Fred was wrong. There is a silver bullet. The silver bullet is having a truly outstanding team. With great people you will get projects done, with excellent quality and on time, in the vast majority of cases.

Why not in all cases?

Well, even a silver bullet misses its target once in a while.

-Buford Twain
