Good post; What I think is important to point out (and what I've always told people) is that overtime is a result of failure: failure of planning, process, time/task/scope/resource management, estimation, etc.

I completely agree. As long as we can recognize that these types of failures are the failures of management and the owners, not the employees. They shouldn't have to work overtime for the poor management of their leaders.

Great points by both of you. Couldn't agree more.
