@erichydrick I'd say you need to be shipping *something* sooner than "everything it needs to do to compete" .. otherwise you can get sucked into the "get it perfect" syndrome of not being OK with "good"

@erichydrick “MVP” (minimum viable product) needs to be swapped for “MUP” (moderately usable/useful product)

"Businesses that actually care about turning a profit will spend a lot of time (hence, a lot of engineers) working on optimizing systems, even if an MVP for the system could have been built in a weekend...Businesses should keep adding engineers to work on optimization until the cost of adding an engineer equals the revenue gain plus the cost savings at the margin. This is often many more engineers than people realize."


"The unreasonable effectiveness of small optimizations applies to any complex system. If there are 1000 knobs, leadership is knowing which ones herd the others."
