Long-time readers of this blog may remember when I build the SIC out of recycled Internet meme-pipes and any random noise I had lying around. The basic engineering principle was that creativity happens when ideas collide, so by maximising the number of streams, then crossing them, I could get the Internet to super-charge my creative process. In no time at all I had started three different books.
Lean practice puts a maximum limit on Work-In-Progress. The less you do, the faster you will achieve, the quicker you will deliver value.
The Bad News:
- You can either be creative or efficient.
- You can be really competitive or really care about quality.
- You can be decisive or know about the details.
Compromise is balance. It’s a Yin and Yang thang.
I shall probably continue to oscillate between the two, attempting to optimise cadence. I may come back to cadence when I feel I really understand what it is.
