Our obsession with efficiency - Dan North

Oredev have put some of the videos from the conference on Vimeo and one of my favourites is ‘Our obsession with efficiency’ by my colleague Dan North.

The slides for the talk are available on SlideShare.

In this talk Dan leads from the following statement about efficiency:

So here's the thing, I don't believe in efficiency. It's our obsession with efficiency that has got us into the current technology mess, and which has led almost directly to heavy waterfall processes. Efficiency is how you let the big vendors sell their bloated technologies to the poor CIOs.

What did I learn?

There’s loads more - it’s a very good talk - but these are some of the bits that stand out for me.
