Don't Mandate Velocity

March 31, 2008

I came across this amusing (fictional) story about a broken watch, and it’s impact on the author’s development process.

I particularly liked one of the author’s comments in the comment thread:

Velocity is a measurement that comes out of development, not an input that goes into it.

[Uncle Bob] said . . . that when you are trying to measure something, it’s counter-productive to put pressure on it.
