manage to disappoint. And, Bravo Joel! Wonderful article!!!

For everyone who hasn't read the amazingly honest article about the self
imposed MBA Legislative Authority in the IT industry, I highly recommend it!

..who frequently inquire about metrics/ROI/etc on design here (and get a
rant from me :-)

"Our team is conducting a benchmarking effort to gather an outside-in view
on development performance metrics and best practice approaches to issues of

process and organization from companies involved in a variety of software
development (and systems integration)."

"Listen. Let me tell you a secret about management consulting companies and
software organizations...Here is how the game is played."


Not that this ever happens when design is asked to justify itself. :-)

Usability >  Simplify the Solution
Design >  Simplify the Problem
