Rosalind: How is the pilot program coming along?

Jimmy: We’ll be ready to launch it in another month, but I have some serious reservations.

Rosalind: Like what?

Jimmy: We haven’t worked out all of the bugs yet and we might come up against some resistance from the community.

Rosalind: Isn’t that the nature of a pilot program? When you’re paving the way, you’re always going to have skeptics and dissenters.

Jimmy: You’re right, of course, but there’s a lot at stake. I just hope this trial run will win over some of those skeptics. It would be a shame to scrap this program after we’ve put in so much work.

Rosalind: After the program is launched, you’ll have six months to prove its worth, right?

Jimmy: Yeah, that’s right.

Rosalind: That’s plenty of time for the dissenters to see the light.

Jimmy: From your lips to God’s ears!
