Can Your Team Pass The Elevator Test?

What are you working on?
 I'm fixing the sort order on this datagrid.
Why are you working on that?
 Because it's on the bug list.
Why is it on the bug list?
 Because one of the testers reported it as a bug.
Why was it reported as a bug?
 The tester thinks this field should sort in numeric order instead of alphanumeric order.
Why does the tester think that?
 Evidently the users are having trouble finding things when item 2 is sorted under item 19.

Cultivate Teams, Not Ideas

 

If I had to point to the one thing that made our project successful, it was not the idea behind it, our internet fame, the tools we chose, or the funding we had (precious little, for the record).

It was our team.

 

If you give a good idea to a mediocre group, they’ll screw it up. If you give a mediocre idea to a good group, they’ll fix it. Or they’ll throw it away and come up with something else.
