Powerful by Patty McCord
“understood that part of the reason large teams are crippled in their ability to innovate and move fast is that because it’s hard work to manage them, companies build infrastructure to make sure people are doing the right things. But the teams I saw that accomplished great stuff just knew what they most needed to accomplish; they didn’t need elaborate procedures, and certainly not incentives.”

Slack by Tom DeMarco
It’s possible to make an organization more efficient without making it better. That’s what happens when you drive out slack.

Zajímavý vhled do dění v Nokii od uvedení iPhone do skoro současnosti. Knihu jsem četl jedním dechem. Pro mne je psaná zajímavým až strhujícím způsobem. Občas se až moc opakuje Paranoidní optimismus, ale asi je to hlavní myšlenka, kterou chce autor v ...more

“If I have the same logic in two places, I work with the design to understand how I can have only one copy. Designs without duplication tend to be easy to change.”

“The smaller your ToDos, the faster you move work across the board. The more you retain your focus. The less multitasking you do.”

“Responsibility cannot be assigned; it can only be accepted. If someone tries to give you responsibility, only you can decide if you are responsible or if you aren't.”

“I’m sorry that I long ago coined the term “objects” for this topic because it gets many people to focus on the lesser idea.”

The result is poorly designed, brittle, hard-to-change systems.”
