project management


For those who might be interested in that project management stuff I posted about, you can find it here. It's the one called "Embracing the Dragon's Tail". Dunno how dry it'll be just reading about it.

There are some other good articles there, too. I especially liked "You Can't Negotiate Cost" and "The Rule of Fifty".

Although, I'll just summarize that last one for you: no matter how much time you spend at work, you'll never get more than 50 hours worth of stuff done per week, and actually, the more overtime you work, the less you'll get done in the long run. Seriously! Backed up by research! (I read some good arguments a while back that the upper limit is likely to be even lower for knowledge work than manual work, but I can't find the article.)
