These days I’m re-filling up my brain with all sort of knowledge edges from BlockChain and Machine Learning to all Agile variants.
Here are notes that I should remember.
A lot of managers don’t think twice about every day things that slow down developers
- Slow or unstable development machines
- Delays from business folks in clarifying requirements
- Little to no feedback on the product until it’s already “done”
- Loss of focus from repeated interruptions
To improve productivity remember to not try to fix single developers but fix the system around them.
“Organizations that are truly lean have a strong competitive advantage because they respond very rapidly and in a highly disciplined manner to market demand, rather than try to predict the future.” – Mary Poppendieck
