Peopleware

I want to spend time to blog about a few things I learned today, but reading Peopleware (Tom DeMarco and Timothy Lister), a book about the follies of conventions of management in software and how to improve everything from performance to retention has got my attention these days. The main theme so far seems to be focused on workspace, however it touches on dress code and personality. It's all about how the corporate culture is crushing performance and throughput in software and similar fields where focus and innovation are keys to success and what changes need to happen to revolutionize the industry. It's been around awhile and is in its third edition. I've been recommending this book to everyone. I'll get around to all of the other great lessons learned in a few days time...
