we’ve always done it that way

  • I was in waterfall years and years ago, agile came like a storm.
  • Scrum was the norm, Kanban was the future.
  • I went from continuous integration to continuous delivery and now continuous deployment.
  • “You manage things, you lead people.”
  • “Humans are allergic to change. They love to say, ‘We’ve always done it this way.’ I try to fight that. That’s why I have a clock on my wall that runs counter-clockwise.”
  • “If it’s a good idea, go ahead and do it. It is much easier to apologize than it is to get permission.”
  • “We are only at the beginning, we are just getting started”
