    Many thanks Steve - Some links following up on last night
    Maker's Schedule, Manager's Schedule - On disrupting programmers.
    A book by Tim Harford called "Adapt - Why success always starts with failure" is a great treatise on celebrating failure and giving responsibility to the team. A good read.

    Thanks for the session tonight. There is a pretty good Hanselminutes podcast with the Poppendiecks on the subject which is worth a listen as I remember: Thanks again.
