One of the things I like about Intelliware is the sanity of the hours. We’re not asked to work extra hours to try and get things done.
James Shore has posted a link to an interesting discussion where a team was ‘asked’ to work extra hours to get rid of a backlog of work.
The team involved had historical performance data, so were able to compare before and after. They discovered that productivity went down and bug levels went up.
Just one more reason to not try to solve ‘we are behind’ by throwing more people or more time at the problem.
