- Sep 2, 2005I imagine that managers who get out the whip are the same folks who honk
their horns in a traffic jam. Maybe they should check out their whip on
servers loaded to 90% capacity and see if it helps move transactions trough
any faster. Or try it in a security line at an airport....

While I agree entirely, Mary, on the notion of cycle time being key,
I've lived through a number of organizations where the management
team, faced with a long queue in development, would conclude that
development needs to go faster, and apply the whip.
It seems to take a somewhat enlightened view to get to the next step
-- whatever that might be. How do we bring about that enlightenment,
and get those guys to put down the whip?
Sorry about your cow ... I didn't know she was sacred.
