Tech work is messed up…and we can fix it
Kathy Sierra tweeted: “The big Q: how much does the *perception* of working in tech need to change, and how much does the *reality* need to change?”
I’m focusing my career on the belief that tech work is *really* messed up and that it doesn’t have to be. If a team I coach gets more productive but doesn’t get happier, I haven’t done my job. The big win with agile/lean/TOC is that they align work with how humans actually function: limited attention span, need for community, continuous learning and limited ability to predict the future, need for frequent positive reinforncement.
