Get out of the way I'm trying to work

A great concise post by Ayende on the Corporate development environments.

Part 1

Part 2

Take aways:
  1. Development teams need access to allocated discretionary budgets for the express purpose to remove impediments -
    1. Lack of tools
    2. Lack of specialised skills (contractors, coaches, trainers)
    3. Access to immediate replacement of broken hardware
  2. Its more damaging for the business in the long run to burn out staff and deliver substandard software on time than to deliver late.
