      I 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?
