Keep the joint running

Picture tweeted by David J. Anderson made me look it up. I like it.

  • There are no best practices, only practices that fit best.
  • To optimize the whole you must sub-optimize the parts.
  • Bad metrics are worse than no metrics.
  • Relationships precede process.
  • Relationships outlive transactions.
  • Don’t confuse documentation with reality.
  • Before you can be strategic you have to be competent.
  • Big solutions that work start as small solutions that work.
  • Customers are external. Internal customers aren’t.
  • Don’t run IT as a business, run it in a business like way.
  • There are no IT projects.
  • Digest with intestines, think with brain.
  • Every employee is irreplaceable.
