Abandon theories of management and development methodologies,
and the developers will benefit a hundredfold.
Abandon fixed hours and codes of conduct,
and enthusiasm for the project will take hold.
Abandon efforts to screw over your people,
and they will not desire to screw the company.

These three are examples of an underlying principle:
look to the basics, and keep it simple;
limit your greed, and beware diminishing returns!

 


chapter notes:

The principle being espoused in the original is readily recognizable as the KISS principle.
