Should your employer look toward mob rule for the efficient completion of successful programming projects?

It’s too early to say for certain, but Aleph Infotinuum Services suspects that such an approach solves some of the problems which either stem from or are difficult to ameliorate by way of other programming methodologies (e.g. XP, Scrum, Lean), while letting one or more of the already-resolved process problems back in.

Seriously, though, there is no way to perfect any individual. To extend that logic, there is also no way to perfect any team. Meeting adjourned.

Seriously, though. Problems within any organization boil down to people. Even within your own enterprise, where each employee is guaranteed to be a talented if imperfect contributor with whom others relish collaborating, there are bound to be supply-chain vendors mucking up the works.

Seriously, though. Imperfect people and imperfect processes tend to stew themselves into man hours and business days eaten up in large part by meetings that never seem to adjourn. Where that leads too often is toward market exposure of a struggling company whose problems with supply-chain vendors become exacerbated by consumers who for some reason won’t pay top dollar for all those meeting minutes.

Seriously, though. Your employer can’t get its huge idea with ten thousand features to the store shelves when so much productive capacity is getting lost within meetings. Or, for that matter, ever.

Seriously, though. Why not encourage teams to hold one continuous meeting that spans multiple sprints and even entire careers, during which the topics under discussion get entered immediately into the productivity swim lane where internal product owners and likewise business line managers can observe genuine progress?
