There are a few Formula1 videos around the web that we use to teach about the economics of batch sizes, particularly in the SAFe, where the teachings of Don Reinertsen are embedded in the body of knowledge. I found this new video on LinkedIn today and thought I would share them with the community.
Remember, we are trying to reduce the transaction cost of a batch. In these videos the older pit stop people, process and tooling resulted in a much higher transaction cost compared to the modern pit stop with automated tools and swarming. This can be done through automation, architecture, tools, kaizen of process, and through new ways of thinking and working, and even new ways of feeling. We must pay particular attention to the relationship between tools, people, and process as optimizing one without tuning the others may not improve anything (systems thinking).Continue reading “DevOps, Automation, Batch Size, Swarming – Formula1 videos”
There is a bunch of Apple hype recently coming out of the most recent WWDC event, or perhaps all of them?. Like the new $6,000 cheese grater (super, sigh). I’m a bit of an Apple ecosystem fan so I noticed something in an article that we can use as an example for that common question SPC’s get from teams and Product Managers. How do I write a SMART PI Objective?Continue reading “Creating SMART PI Objectives in SAFe®”
I’ll take a cheese grater supreme with sautéed onions, bacon, and more bacon. Oh, wait, scratch that, I can’t afford a cheese grater supreme. Even without the extras.
Nevermind the $4999 fries and $999 stand to hold my fries.
I have a house and bag full of Apple gear, but they have clearly gone bat shit crazy with their pricing.
