Riffing on a theme from Rework… I believe the project management structure and process framework of team should be a little less than “just enough.”  Anything more wastes people’s time and becomes more about the process than shipping (thank you Seth). Even though it was frustrating at times, Fedora taught me this lesson well.

There is little joy or satisfaction experienced on projects with oversight that amounts to executing the equivalent of the Space Shuttle’s pre-launch checklist on a toy airplane flight.
