Acting and Planning

“We made mistakes, of course. Most of them were omissions we didn’t think of when we initially wrote the software. We fixed them by doing it over and over, again and again. We do the same today. While our competitors are still sucking their thumbs trying to make the design perfect, we’re already on prototype version No. 5. By the time our rivals are ready with wires and screws, we are on version No. 10. It gets back to planning versus acting. We act from day one; others plan how to plan - for months.”

I am with my Mayor on this, while developping product we should act, involve the customer in the product development, get their feedback continously, make the changes, continue iterating this, and the rest will come.
