  • Reserving (too little) cash for budget
  • Starting the trade
  • Seller promises – buyer believes
  • Closing a deal
  • Installing a product and training the users
  • Wondering, what be just bought
  • Arguing with the seller until noticing what the contract really says and ending up to be a payer
  • Buying the missing parts
  • Getting the system into productive use
