    Slowing Decisions Down | #147

    Here's another technique card from my seminar, "Leading Technical Change". We first get into midwifing change precisely because we want it to be smoother, easier, and faster. But sometimes, a coach needs not to rush a decision through, but to slow it down.

    What About Failure? | #146

    What About Failure? | #146

    If we're going to enable and support change, we're going to fail, more often than we succeed, and we want to bake tht idea in, early on, lest we fail both more often, and potentially more disastrously.

    Slash the Load | #144

    Slash the Load | #144

    The people who hire me ask me to help their teams make changes. Most of the time, my first step is to see how I can slash those teams' load. To me, this is dreadfully obvious, but for a lot of folks seeking change, it comes as a completely shocking idea.

    Against Automated Macrotests | #142

    TDD Pro-Tip: I advocate against automated macro-tests -- those whose base is entire running programs --, as their cost is high and their benefit is doubtful. I very rarely write them. There is a bewildering variety of terminology out there around what I'm calling macro-tests, so let's poke around a little.
