A little dated in some ways but still extremely topical in most others. Really nice thinking about how people can work best and what keeps them from doing so.

Insightful read on how to manage teams and organizations to increase effectiveness, and how "efficiency" is the wrong way to go about it, by one of my favorite writers about management. Lots of lessons I wish I had learned before...

Easily one of the best books I've read in recent times. Made me understand a lot more about what works and what doesn't (and why) in the field of software development. It's an old, classic book, but reads as if it had been written yesterday.

I re-read this book periodically to re-learn some of the many lessons in it. [author: DeMarco] says a lot about "the white space" in your organization and [book: Slack] was one of the books I quoted from in my presentation earlier this year on Managing in the White Space of your Organization. He writes about being a leader, what this really means and what it doesn't mean. He writes about efficiency and effectiveness and how it is easy to have one or the other and very difficult (but ideal) to have both.

And mostly he writes about slack: that extra bit of time to think, to re-invent, to create and communicate, that extra bit of resources that you need to adjust quickly to changing environments.

By being too efficient (going somewhere fast), we sometimes forget about being effective (where are we going?) -- quoting Yogi Berra, he observes "We're lost, but we're making good time."
