When appearing on TV for an interview, interviewees don’t just sit down with Barbara Walters on a whim and hope they can handle the questions and responses with grace. Instead, they practice and test their interview responses, body language, and everything else; one wrong comment or remark could taint their image or reputation. The risk of not practicing and testing is far too great than the time it takes to ensure everything will go smoothly.
Similarly, why would a company decide to deploy software and/or an upgrade without testing?
With deployments and upgrades that go rogue, employees and those using the technology are often affected, annoyed, and there is a risk is losing valuable data or disrupting the process so greatly that business as usual is NOT business as usual.
