    Push out

    What does "push it out for a week" mean in the context of talking about scheduling?

    I've never met with it before. It might mean delay it for a week.

    I heard this in one of the conf call. I can't remember the exact phrase. I think he was trying to say "either the schedule will be delayed" or "it will be completed" in a certain time.

    Any idea ?

    Thanks!

    Re: Push out

    Push it back a week = delay it a week
    Push it out in a week = release it in one week
