Here's something to try when you're programming today.

One such bias tells us that if we want to produce more, we have to work harder. But this isn’t the case; the key metric isn’t effort, it’s results — throughput. To increase the productivity of a system running at 100%, we have to decrease the work in progress, or WIP. In Lean terms, we have to introduce slack (this slack, not this one).

Maybe productivity is good in Lean. In its parent ideology, TPS, productivity is closely linked to waste. It's about efficiency — neither about effort nor about productivity.

You keep using that word.
I do not think it means what you think it means.

I've heard "enterprise software" defined as "where the folks buying it aren't the folks using it".

Thinking hard about the problems inherent in large organizations, especially with respect to cultural transformations such as "going agile."

A minor historical note (in which I also have likely also made some mistakes).

Help your colleagues think less about data relationships in tests.

Have stayed many times when work takes me to SF. Always pleasant, reasonable price for downtown SF, clean and roomy, good food in the bar is you don't feel like venturing out to the many local pubs and restaurants. Good access to BART, embarcadero, convention center, financial district, bus station. Consistent experience, very much the Marriott courtyard feel and a nice during area with fire.

I have only recently found this place, though it's not far from my house. It was a bit of a surprise when I drove up and saw it is mostly (by square footage) a wine & fine spirits store (probably the best in the area), so I wasn't sure I was in the right place. Great bread, great spreads, great meats, fresh veg... what's not to like? I've not tried delivery yet. I see that they deliver everything.
