The slower but consistent tortoise causes less waste and is much more desirable than the speedy hare that races ahead and then stops occasionally to doze.
Management is doing things right;
Leadership is doing the right things.
Efficiency is doing things right;
Effectiveness is doing the right things.
Quality comes not from inspection, but from improvement of the production process.
W. Edwards Deming
A bad system will beat a good person every time.
Without standards, there can be no improvement.
From the Scrum Guide:
During the meeting, the Development Team members explain:
- What did I do yesterday that helped the Development Team meet the Sprint Goal?
- What will I do…
A boat doesn’t go forward if each one is rowing their own way.
If you destroy the people of a company, you do not have much left.
Standards should not be forced down from above, but rather set by the production workers themselves.
