Agile Quote
Cool quote I read on a mailing list with regards to project management:

"Forget carrots and sticks. If you want your horses to go faster, pave the road."

(translation: don't worry so much about rewards and punishments, instead remove impediments to make it easier for people to do their job.)

(We _told_ them that if we made it freely scalable it would necessarily be slower. They wanted scalable. Now the complaint is that it's too slow...)
