Being presented with a feature/request/idea/whatever and even though it seems to make good ROI sense, good technical sense, and meet every other criteria, that it's a bad idea and will fail in the long run -- because you've seen it happen before.
I can't even think of a good example to illustrate. It's more of a vibe or general unease. I learned recently my boss calls it my "spidey sense" and if it goes off he digs into it with me.
It's Hans Solo's "I've got a bad feeling about this" because he's been there before.
Your boss gets into it with you and you can’t even think of a good example..?
Oh I can think of examples of when my spidey sense went off, but nothing I can share publicly, and nothing I can think of about the situation that would result in any sort of "things to consider." If that makes sense.
