Yep I did mention that subtly with reference to features having to earn but point is valid. You’re either measuring right or you aren’t :)

Yep also possible but unstated - I left that at references to features having to earn, lazy me ;)

A typical org is focused on productivity or analogues thereof. In essence, MOAR! With such a narrow focus it's highly probable one actually ends up with less because they very things that would lead to improvement are deemed unproductive or too costly in time and money. Doh.

Which leads me to another line of thought, that feature factories care about nothing other than features hence will be providing a bad experience for their customers. If you want to get some idea of the long-term promise for an org, ask them what's in the backlog and why...

There is no such thing as non-feature work. It only exists because we naively view features to be the way to serve customers better hence creating a false and damaging separation. Customers care about jobs, service and experience, not features.

Maybe. I’d venture that unless you try a new approach or substantively different you’ll learn what it is to have no tester with a test oriented process. Might not be useful but, who knows?

Continuous improvement requires a clear definition of value. Without it, we are just changing things without knowing whether we’re better, worse, or going in circles. Working software is not a definition of value.

280 char limit meant eliding- when I say doing I mean as in doing informs theory, science style hence bi-directional looping - you have to have both. Consider economics and it’s flaws…

Continuous improvement advocates a scientific, data-driven type of approach to identifying, applying & validating the effect of an improvement eg via statistical control. Sw dev orgs rarely have anything equivalent and are rather more magpie in their approach. Quite the mess.

That some name provides (or doesn't) a quote on some thing doesn't imply truth, accuracy, correctness or value. "x wrote a book on y and they say..." Views, opinions and facts are very different things, much of "journalism" these days is unhelpful. Truth comes through doing...

Check out Deming for inspection (google will do a decent job of finding open references). He’s written a bunch of books but that’s money so….

It would appear that sw dev has elevated testing (inspection) to piety if not deity thus it cannot be questioned. No progress can be made on quality whilst that pervades. I fully expect stoning and crucifixion...

A system, an activity, and mindset. What might be the difference between them...

Depends on how you read it and with what mindset. I know how I wrote it and that wasn’t my intent. What was yours in responding?
