Thinking about permission (and making what’s tacit more explicit)
“We knew, when we wrote [the GDS ‘It’s ok’ poster], what things it should say. There was very little argument or discussion about what we should say was OK, because everyone on the team already understood. The point of the poster was to help newcomers learn and understand the culture quickly, without having to spend years finding things out by accident.

Estimation is Evil – PragPub February 2013
“The C3 Payroll, held up as one of the original successes—and original failures—of Agile, would very likely have been more successful had it not assumed that the job was to predict when it would all be done, or even track and project when it would be done. The job was to convene a team to solve the problems of the Payroll organization, and when the return on that investment declined, to move on. More would surely have been accomplished, and quite likely more of it would be still running today.”
